Matt Mondanile of Real Estate has a side project that he does, and records under the name Ducktails. Yes, just like the Disney cartoon.
Similar to Real Estate, Ducktails falls under the dream pop banner. Naturally the guitar work is strikingly similar (duh), but Mondanile’s vocals and the lo-fi sound is what differentiates the bands.
The new album, St. Catherine, comes out in July. In the meantime, here is the first single, Headbanging In The Mirror.
