Body Faucet, the debut full length album from Athens, GA band Reptar is out today via Vagrant Records and currently available to stream in full at Spinner, MSN, and the band’s website.
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.
Reptar began playing music in late 2008. Since then, the quartet has gained a reputation for their frenzied, must-see live show. The band will play a hometown release show at Athens’ 40 Watt Club this Friday, May 4th in celebration of the release before embarking on a run of dates with Grouplove. 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.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as the band unveils music videos and remixes from the album.
