Ducktails, the one-man indie-pop project of Real Estate's Matthew Mondanile, has officially made my morning. I mean, not only did seeing the name remind me of my Saturday mornings spent in Duckberg as a kid, but this first morsel from his new LP is just built for a sunny fall morning in the south.
Our JOTD, "Hamilton Road," is about as lax as indie projects get. A plucked acoustic, gently-played electric, and some campfire inspired percussion is all it takes to frame Mondanile's laid back vocals for this pleasant little ditty.
Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, is Mondanile's third official full-length LP and will be released by Woodsist Records in January 2011.
