Another year, another bedroom-pop record from some project of Matt Mondanile’sThe Flower Lane constitutes the second release of the Real Estate sideman’s onetime solo project Ducktails, which has evolved into a group effort. “Letter of Intent” is the record’s glimmering, delirious second single, which features Jessa Farkas of Future Shuttle and Ian Drennan of Big Troubles trading off some beautiful vocals and the inimitable Oneohtrix Point Never delivering warbling synth solos that remind us of Bernie Worrell in old-school Talking Heads concert videos. The record drops January 29.
