    The amount of growth is staggering, and moving from the hazy-headed territory of older Ducktails to songwriting this polished and still pulling it off speaks volumes for the purity of the project's development, as well as Mondanile's refreshed vision as an artist.

    A great, surprising album. I've listened to Ducktails in the past and have always been pleased with the songs that Matt from Real Estate could crank out. This album however is completely different than any other album that he has released in the past. Mondale proves his skills as a song craft as he uses all of the guest spots on here perfectly. This album has a few gems on here like "Under Cover" and "Assistant Director" while tracks like "Ivy Covered House", "Letter of Intent" and "The Flower Lane" are also stand outs. Seriously though, almost every track on here can stand alone by itself. I'm really impressed by this album. I recommend this album to Real Estate and non-Real Estate fans alike. Full Review »
