[AMBIENT INDIE ROCK] Lead guitarist Matt Mondanile is seemingly becoming less and less lonesome as the days go on. Performing under the moniker Ducktails, the New Jersey-based musician’s solo endeavor is no longer just a side project but a full-blooded collaborative venture complete with all the hallmarks of a full-blown band. With its most recent release, The Flower Lane, Ducktails’ discography now contains four albums brimming with airy vocals, swirling synths and sounds that echo—but never mirror—Mondanile’s main project, Real Estate. Although the bane of the album is its split personality, consistently treading between psychedelic pop hooks and melancholy funk-tinged jams, it’s also its most alluring feature. Now, if only the name didn’t remind us of a Disney cartoon.
