Ducktails

If you asked me to give you a list of Ducktails songs that I love, I don’t think I could do it.  Over the years my appreciation for the project has been inconsistent, and for the most part I’d rather just have Matt Mondanile focus on being a part of Real Estate.  With that being said, I do think his new single is rather pleasant and it at least has me interested in what else may be on his upcoming LP.  Enjoy.

St. Catherine is due out July 24 via Domino.

Quickdraw: Future Of The Left, The Blow, Son Lux, Shearwater, Ducktails

September 10, 2013

Today’s music doesn’t know what to do with you.  Enjoy.

:Future Of The Left – Bread, Cheese, Bow And Arrow:  Mclusky may be long gone, but at least we still have Andy Falkous plodding along as Future Of The Left.  The world needs his snarl.  How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident is due out October 21 via Prescriptions Music.

:The Blow – From The Future:  I keep listening to this wonderfully refreshing and superbly well crafted pop gem and wondering why it wasn’t the first single.  It’s just about perfect.  The Blow’s self titled album will be released on October 1 via Kanine.  See them at Red 7 on November 2.

:Son Lux – Lost It To Trying:  There’s a lot going on in this song, but it works.  Son Lux’s upcoming album is going to be really good if it’s full of tracks as dynamic as this one.  We’ll all be able to grab Lanterns on October 29 via Joyful Noise Recordings.

:Shearwater – I Luv The Valley OH!! (Xiu Xiu Cover):  It would appear that Shearwater have assembled an album of covers to pay tribute to the acts they’ve played with over the years.  I can get behind that.  The LP is titled Fellow Travelers, and it’s due out November 26 via Sub Pop.  Personally, I can’t wait to hear their version of St. Vincent’s Cheerleader.

:Ducktails – Honey Tiger Eyes:  Because staying busy is fun, Ducktails are putting out an EP directly on the heels of The Flower Lane, which came out earlier this year.  This first single is an ear-pleaser.  The Wish Hotel EP is expected out on October 22 via Domino.

Quickdraw: Menahan Street Band, Ducktails, Legendary Wings, Fidlar, Still Corners

October 16, 2012

Today’s music likes its coffee without cream.  Enjoy.

:Menahan Street Band – Lights Out:  While I love the fact that this group of soul geniuses have readied a new album, I hate that their tour with Charles Bradley doesn’t feature a stop in Austin.  Oh well.  At least I have you.  The band will release The Crossing on October 30 via Dunham/Daptone Records.

:Ducktails – The Flower Lane:  I don’t think I realized how long this Matt Mondanile-lead act has been around.  They’re about to put out their fourth full length!  That’s just sort of blowing my mind.  At any rate, this laid back pop tune is the first track to be released off their new effort, which is titled The Flower Lane and is due January 29 via Domino.

:Legendary Wings – Paper Roses:  Dirtnap Records is home to some of the best pop punk that Earth has to offer, and this band is one of their most recent signings.  You’re going to dig them.  Making Paper Roses just came out last week.  Go pick up a copy or three!

:Fidlar – Awwwkwarrrddd (Featuring Kate Nash):  Once this year is all said and done, it’s going to be very difficult to not put all of Fidlar’s 2012 tunes in my top song list.  The band just doesn’t know how to do anything bad.  This is a random single, so download it while you can.

:Still Corners – Fireflies:  This is a really pretty pop track that I probably should have posted a few weeks back.  Better late than never, right?  Still Corners are said to be working on their next full length, which will be out sometime next year on the almighty Sub Pop.
