Ducktails Reveal Details About Upcoming Third Album

Ducktails, or Matthew Mondanile, also known as the guitarist for the band Real Estate, is releasing his third album and we have all the info about it right here for you. You can now circle the month of January 2011 if you’re interested in purchasing their upcoming full-length, Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, which will be out on Woodsist Records.
