Ducktails ‘St. Catherine’ | Album Review

ducktails copy album cover

The fifth outing under his Ducktails pseudonym, there’s no doubt that this is Matt Mondanile’s most accomplished and commercial collection so far.

Melodic, but with enough that’s off-kilter to keep you engaged, there’s no filler here. Lead single ‘Headbanging in the Mirror’, which Mondanile describes as ‘lolloping’, gives a good indication of the quality on St. Catherine. Awash with dreamy plucking and ever-so-softly keys, it’s the return of his soporific sound, just a little tighter, and I dare I say more mature.

I predict another gleaming critical reception.
