Pleased to announce a show at the Golden West in Baltimore on February 8 with Ducktails and Woods coming to town, to be joined by one of our local favorites, Dustin Wong.
Ducktails is Matt Mondanile from Real Estate, a side project from Mondanile that's released a generous offering of tapes, 7"s, and records on labels that include Not Not Fun, Olde English Spelling Bee, and SHDWLPY. The new record is due out this month on Woodsist, and is called Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics.
"Hamilton Road" is the single for the new record, and highlights the bright and airy psychedelic pop that the project has recently leaned towards - a more structured method as to the looping ambient melodies found on his self-titled LP on NNF and Landscapes.
Woods includes Jeremy Earl (Fuck It Tapes dude) and Jarvis Taveniere (Meneguar, Wooden Wand), and has released a couple fine LPs via Woodsist. The above track is the lead on 2009's Songs of Shame, which was being supported last time they came around these parts (back in 2009 at Ottobar with Dungen). Since then they've released At Echo Lake, another batch of well-constructed psychedelic pop excursions that reminisce gems from Wowee Zowee-era Pavement and some other crunchier counterparts.
Throw in one of the more mind-boggling guitar wizards we've ever encountered, and you've got yourself a show. Dustin Wong's Infinite Love was one of our favorite LPs to come out of Baltimore last year, and if you've seen him live you know it's no slouch either. Watch videos from all three after the jump, get tickets in advance right here.
