Ducktails drops tape with previously-unreleased material, updates Euro tour schedule
Please update/rearrange your personal lives accordingly.

As we excitedly reported earlier this month, Matt Mondanile a.k.a. Ducktails is banding up with some of our other favorite musicians ever (namely James Ferraro and his old pal Spencer Clark, lately performing under the moniker Typhonian Highlife) for a May Euroflex 2017 tour.

Now, Mondanile has dropped an exclusive, 60-minute-long tape that will surely spruce up his merch table during the expedition. Named after a 1938 Merrie Melodies short, Daffy Duck in Hollywood is a collection of decidedly lo-fi cuts recorded by “the Duck” in Los Angeles between 2013 and 2016. Side B of the tape has been shared in its entirety on Soundcloud, and Side A includes “Don’t Want to Let You Know” — a song previously released as a video.

Going back to the grand three-headed monster tour itself: new dates have been added, and some sadly removed. Mondanile, Ferraro, and Clark will now visit Leeds, Bristol, Gdańsk, Athens, and Venice, but appearances in several other Italian cities seem to be off the table.

Meanwhile, Ducktails’ tape can be obtained via Mondanile’s own New Images label; here’s the link. Also, after you check out side B of that tape down below, please review the most current Euroflex itinerary down underneath that…because we’re pretty sure it’s for-real this time.
