Recorded in both LA and his mom’s basement in Ridgewood, NJ.

Ducktails aka Matt Mondanile has announced the new album Jersey Devil which is out this fall via his own label New Images Limited.

Today you can hear the hazy first single ‘Map To The Stars’ which comes with a video that offers a psychedelic take on the Jersey suburbs.

The album is described as a return to Mondanile’s DIY roots and began as the recording sessions in LA that set the scene of our 2015 interview with him and his Against The Clock.

Following those sessions and his departure from Real Estate, Mondanile traveled back to his hometown of Ridgewood, NJ where he continued recording in is mom’s basement.

“Everything felt right: the mini mall across the street, the stock brokers walking their dogs, and the sweet summer smell in the air,” he explains about returning to the suburban area that inspired the early Ducktails and Real Estate recordings. The album was finally mixed in Hoboken at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon studio.
