Ducktails – “Headbanging In The Mirror”

Matt Mondanile put out his first Ducktails record in 2009, and he’s consistently released a new album every few years, usually in the downtime between Real Estate records. His latest effort is St. Catherine, which was put together by Mondanile over the past year-and-a-half primarily on the West Coast, and was mixed by Rob Schnapf, who is best known for his work with Elliot Smith. “Headbanging In The Mirror” is the album’s lead single, and it features the woozy touch of experimental musician James Ferraro. It’s a preternaturally chill track that carries on the Ducktails legacy well. Listen to it below, plus check out the album tracklist and an extensive list of tour dates.
