Reptar has announced that their forthcoming full length release is available to stream in full, a week prior to release. Entitled Body Faucet, the debut effort is due out on May 1st via Vagrant Records.
In March the Athens, GA based band played 13 riotous shows at Austin’s SXSW, including Comedy Central’s much buzzed about “Workaholics” party. Comedy Central loved the group so much, they decided to host the album stream on their own website and CC Insider Blog.
With a reputation as one of the most exciting touring acts of the moment, Reptar continue to sell out tour dates on their headline tour. The band SOLD OUT their headline stops in Austin, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City and has played to over 5,000 people on their current tour.
Produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out), Body Faucet is the follow up to the group’s heralded debut EP Oblangle Fizz Y’all, which Rolling Stone praised for its, “…blend of upbeat rhythms, reggae-infected vocals and psychedelic textures.” Body Faucet finds the band delving deeper into world-music influences to compliment their unique blend of danceable and electro infused pop.
Hailing from Athens, GA, Reptar began playing music in late 2008. Since then, the quartet has gained a reputation for their frenzied, must-see live show. Reptar is Graham Ulicny (Vocals, Guitar), Andrew McFarland (Drums), Ryan Engelberger (Bass), and William Kennedy (Synth, Keys).
