Reptar isn’t new to the music scene–they opened for Foster the People last year–but their debut album, Body Faucet, comes out soon and you’ll want to make sure you know about them before they blow up (meaning get some tickets to see them when they tour next ASAP). It’s probably going to be my album of the summer, especially considering their EP, Oblangle Fizz Y’all, is definitely my album for spring.
I recently listened to an interview with them, which made me love them even more. Their favorite venues are hosue parties, they play nightly Jenga games on tour, and, yes, the band is named after the Rugrats character. Adorable. I may attempt to sneak onto their tour bus next time they hit NYC.
Listen, love, download/buy their EP, and wait for Body Faucet on May 1st!
