WTF? Ducktails New Jam
Man, I’m really stuck on the fence with this Ducktails track that just came out. Matt Mondanile has added a posse of contributors for his newest record, The Flower Lane, but I’m not sure I’m sold on their collaborative appeal. This tune has Dan Lopatin who uses some hipster-approved moniker, and while I appreciate the effortless keyboard work behind the song, I just don’t think it’s quite as enticing as the work done on Ducktails III. I don’t mind loops and such, but in his early tape days, Matt was using guitars crafting this dense pop collage–seemingly not the case. I’m not jumping off the fence entirely, but I’m approaching the January 29th release date on Domino with a little trepidation.
