Ducktails and the members of Real Estate
Ducktails was the title of a ‘80s cartoon packaged as part of “The Disney Afternoon” and is now the solo project of Real Estate guitarist Matthew Mondanile. The guitarist will release his third album, Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, this January via Woodsist Records. According to Mondanile’s camp, “At 22 he started releasing his own cassette albums at first living in Northampton, MA. His first 7 inch came out on Breaking World Records followed by a string of LP’s, Cassettes, and CD’s on small independent likeminded labels like Not Not Fun, Olde English Spelling Bee, Release the Bats, Arbor, Goaty Tapes etc. Born in Ridgewood, NJ and now surrounded by a like-minded crew of young songwriters, Matt spends his time either touring or recording in the basement of his parent’s house and partying in the city. Categorized by David Keenan as part of the ‘hypnagogic pop’ movement, Ducktails attempts to realize a shared cultural memory and nostalgia through various genres, drone, psych, music concrete, etc.”
Ducktails will perform at Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH on November 15. Please click here for more on Real Estate and its associated bands.
