Ducktails' Matt Mondanile Starts Record Label, Readies Tomutonttu 12"

Last July, when Altered Zones was just a few weeks old, Matt Mondanile of Ducktails and Real Estate sent in a guest post on Tomutonttu, the schizoid electronic solo project of Kemialliset Ystävät's Jan Anderzen. Word just came in that Mondanile has started his own record label, New Images, which is 100% independent, and will be kicking off with a 12" from the Finnish musician in late June. "Donovan," below, is a colorful smorgasbord of polyrhymic drum patter, tinny string samples, and flyaway ear candy. You might think that its only unifying logic principle is its own hyperactivity, until it tunnelvisions into a woodsy groove. --Emilie Friedlander, Altered Zones

Tomutonttu: "Lautta lähtee"

Elävänä planeetalla 12" is out June 25th via New Images. Below, a video trailer for the album courtesy Anderzen himself. A Ducktails' Killing The Vibe 12" is also in the works for the label, capturing a live performance with Spectrals in Leeds
