Ducktails announces new album, St. Catherine, shares track, goes on tour... might also solve a mystery or rewrite history while he's at it

Okay, Matt Mondanile, here we go again, right? Blah blah blah — literal Duck Tales cartoon joke, blah blah blah — Real Estate, blah blah blah “fifth outing as Ducktails” called St. Catherine due July 24 on Domino = “more refined, personal, and sincere” album. Right? Anything else?

Oh, no shit! Rob Schnapf co-produced?? Whoa, cool! So exactly HOW MUCH should it remind me of Elliott Smith, then? Guess we’ll all just have to listen to the James Ferraro-featuring lead single “Headbanging In The Mirror” (embedded below) to find out! Can’t wait to compare the two of you as ARTISTS!

OR we could wait until the whole thing comes out: on CD, digital, standard-edition LP, and on limited-edition colored vinyl LP through Domino; and also as an elegant but boring bunch of MP3s and shit on iTunes.

OR we could probably catch you on tour this summer starting at the end of this month to hear the songs live and in person. I’ll probably totally go to your Chicago date and shout things about Duck Tales and request “Needle in the Hay” covers and all sorts of stuff like that. It’ll be great! See you there, Matt! <3 <3 <3
