Description:
≡»   Matt Mondanile, probably best known as a member of Real Estate, makes records under the name Ducktails. This summer, he’ll follow up 2013’s The Flower Lane with St. Catherine.
≡»   The album also features Julia Holter (on “Church” and “Heaven’s Room”) and members of her band Chris Votek and Andrew Tholl. The album was recorded with Rob Schnapf, who co–produced Elliott Smith’s XO and Either/Or. He worked on it throughout last year and at the start of this year, recording in L.A., Berlin, and New York.
≡»   Mondanile partially wrote and recorded St Catherine over the course of 2014 and then finished off recording at the start of 2015. The longest time he has ever spent working on a record, it took place in bedrooms and studios predominantly in east LA and Glendale, but venturing as far as Berlin and New York as Mondanile worked on tracks around heavy periods of Real Estate touring.
≡»   When Mondanile finally settled back in LA at the start of 2015, it was Rob Schnapf that he turned to in order to help put the finishing touches to St. Catherine. ≡»   Together, the pair added a new crispness and punch to the record’s more upbeat, psychedelic pop tracks (such as James Ferraro–featuring, lolloping lead single “Headbanging In The Mirror”, and the soaring “Into The Sky”), that recalls the artful muscularity of Smith’s later work, whilst title track, the heavenly “St. Catherine” boasts one of Mondanile’s greatest ever lead guitar lines and benefits greatly from Schnapf’s warm, rich feel.
Description 2:
≡»   Unfurling out of Los Angeles comes 'St. Catherine', Matt Mondanile's fifth outing as Ducktails. The new album emerges from the roots of Mondanile's previous work, from the free–form, ambient bedroom experiments of seminal underground release 'Landscapes' (2009), to 2013's eighties pop re–imagination 'The Flower Lane', but ultimately moves Ducktails on to a more refined, personal and sincere place. 'St. Catherine' is a finely–honed collection of baroque pop songs that take the blissful, cascading melodic fretwork that Mondanile has made his signature with both Ducktails and his other band, Real Estate, and applies it to songs of considerable new emotional heft and dynamic range.

≡»   When Mondanile finally settled back in LA at the start of 2015, it was Rob Schnapf, co–producer of Elliott Smith's classic albums 'XO' and 'Either / Or', that he turned to in order to help put the finishing touches to 'St. Catherine'.

≡»   Where 'St. Catherine' impresses even moreso, however, is when Mondanile steps out of his comfort zone, as he does frequently and with great success. The Julia Holter–featuring 'Church' and 'Heaven's Room', tracks which see Mondanile flex his muscles as a composer and arranger, introducing complex, interlocking vocal harmonies, gorgeously sweeping string parts (provided by Chris Votek and Andrew Tholl) and a host of off–kilter electronic elements into his sonic palate — channelling the likes of Broadcast, and Stereolab but with a younger, wide–eyed sensibility. ≡»   http://www.southrecordshop.com/
Artist Biography by Nate Knaebel
≡»   Ducktails is the solo side project of Matthew Mondanile, a member of Ridgewood, New Jersey–based indie beach bums Real Estate. While not too dissimilar in tone from the sun-kissed pop of his main squeeze, Mondanile's work as Ducktails presents a more fragmented, mercurial version of the Garden State of mind. More synthetic, too, than Real Estate, Ducktails is all burbling analog synths, bedroom processing, and sunburnt soundscapes. The end effect acts as a sort of bleary aural Polaroid taken at a backyard party Real Estate just finished playing. Mondanile's output under the Ducktails moniker has been prolific and perhaps a tad illusory; he has released numerous ultra–rare cassettes and CD–Rs, a pair of 7"s, and a pair of "official" LPs (a self–titled album on Not Not Fun and Landscapes on Olde English Spelling Bee, both in 2009). In addition to playing in several other projects, including Predator Vision and the Parasails, Mondanile released a split with Dracula Lewis in 2010, before releasing Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, in 2011. The album took a more bare–bones approach, and marked a notable change in style for Ducktails. By the time 2013's The Flower Lane arrived on Domino Recordings, Mondanile had moved even further away from his bedroom beginnings, recording more traditional mellow pop with a full band. A five–song EP, Wish Hotel, arrived later that year, keeping the same sophisticated style as the album that preceded it.  ≡»   http://www.allmusic.com/
