Ducktails is the solo side project of Matthew Mondanile, a member of the indie-rock band Real Estate. The project’s recently released fourth album, “The Flower Lane,” is similar in tone to his work with Real Estate but presents a more fragmented version with analog synths, bedroom processing and musical experimentation. Mondanile released numerous cassettes, burned CDs and an official self-titled EP in the last few years, but “The Flower Lane” moves away from the solo home recording of past releases and leans toward a more collaborative studio feel with bright and expansive pop songs. Ducktails performs at Strange Matter on Wednesday, March 6, at 8 p.m. $10. strangematterrva.com.
