09.29Ducktails – “Hamilton Road”
“Hamilton Road,” off the upcoming Ducktails album (wait for it) Ducktails III, is a hazy, sticky, candy-fueled, sunkissed ramble down tree-covered hills that wouldn’t sound outta place on a Pavement album if they weren’t too smarty-pants for their own good. It’s a countrified tangle of guitars and keyboards where the vocals strike the only mysterious note, sounding dislocated and echoey and out of place wtih the front porchy vibe of everything else. Like a backwoods Krautrock mantra that ends on the perfects shake of a tambourine. No chorus, one verse. Chillwave, this ain’t!
