<a href="">Hamilton Road by Ducktails</a>

Back in my hometown for two weeks (Christchurch city hands up!), livin it up at my parents' place, working at a cinema, biking around remembering weird stuff, and this new Ducktails track could not be more apt in soundtracking remembered suburban feelings and home comforts. "Laid back" is the state of mind here for sure; sounding a lot more Real Estate-y than the synth hypnotics of say, Landscapes. Actually, this reminds me a bit of those jumbly pop songs like "The Mall" from the early Ducktails II cassette, executed w/ amateurish charm and rendered all halcyon and bittersweet.
