Ducktails’ new album The Flower Lane drops next month (1/29) via Domino. We’ve previously posted the album’s title track, but the official first single is “Letter Of Intent,” a slow-rollin’ synth-pop tune that sounds nothing like any of the Ducktails’ prior tunes. Regardless, this is certainly catchy. It features vocals from singer Jessa Farkas, and a couple of other noteworthy guests: Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, on synth, and Lopatin’s Ford & Lopatin partner Joel Ford on bass. Take a listen to the swell vibes below:
Ducktails is Real Estate guitarist’s Matthew Mondanile’s other band. In what has become an increasingly less “solo” endeavor of Matt Mondanile’s, Ducktails is set to release The Flower Lane, which is the project’s fourth album and his first for Domino. It follows up 2010’s excellent (and overlooked) Arcade Dynamics III and is out January 29, 2013. Check out the title track below:
Take a gander at the video for Dirty Projectors‘ Swing Lo Magellan highlight, ”About to Die”. It features a bedridden Dave Longstreth, every religious leader under the sun, and a few dalmatians. All of which are appropriately jamming in the back of a truck. Makes sense.
In other new, the band has announced a new EP in support of the standout track. The About to Die EP is due out November 6th on Domino and features 3 fresh tracks, listed below.
01 About to Die 02 While You’re Here 03 Here Til It Says I’m Not 04 Simple Request

Listen to “Dance For You”, the second single from the Dirty Projectors’ upcoming album Swing Lo Magellan, which is out July 10 on Domino. Pretty straight forward Dirty Projectors here, which is to say not straight forward at all in a standard musical sense. That guitar solo from Dave Longstreth is all sorts of fantastic. Listen below:
