Ducktails is the scruffy solo project of Matthew Mondanile from New Jersey’s tuneful indie pop combo Real Estate. Ducktails' 2013 album “The Flower Lane” was described by BBC Music as “predominantly gentle, its music full, sunny and generally unabrasive.” Supporting are scratchy Australian pop foursome The Stevens, in town for a string of shows including an appearance Sunday at the soon-to-close Death By Audio in Williamsburg. Catch their video for their new single “Thirsty Eye” here. Baby's All Right, 146 Broadway, Williamsburg. $12.00
