Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Reptar's aesthetic percolates even more vibrantly through their debut LP, Body Faucet, out May 1, 2012 on Vagrant Records. A set of shimmering sing-along anthems produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Washed Out), Body Faucet is propelled by jerky guitars and persistent beats. "The record feels like a big dream with different chapters," says Ryan. "Ghost Bike" captures the space between witnessing a friend's death and surviving it. In "Sebastian" (named after a saint who became a gay icon), it's experiencing, then remembering, a sexual awakening with a close friend. Lyrics and music flow in a liquid form from real places, each song oozing with a different color and substance. "We wanted to capture the thoughts we project on our surroundings and the ideas that flow in and out of us each day," says Graham. Indeed, much of the record deals with exploring and interacting with one's surroundings in new, occasionally frustrating, ways. The album builds with songs such as "New House," expressing a future of possibilities. A centerpiece of sorts, notes Andrew, "it's the most driving song on the record, and it's really empowering live."

About the Artist

There are four boys who make up Reptar. They have offered twice as many (if not more) explanations for why they chose to name their band after a Rugrats character. But these days, the Athens, GA based group is sticking to this one: "I first tried to name the band Invisible Boyfriend," giggles singer-guitarist Graham Ulicny. "And everybody goes, `that is the stupidest name I have ever heard in my life." So why Reptar? "It is the second stupidest band name we have ever heard."

Indeed, there is no pretense behind Reptar, which also includes Andrew McFarland (drums), Ryan Engelberger (Bass), and William Kennedy (analog keyboards). Still, the ability to amuse and arouse their fans is just as important to them as indulging their musical curiosities. This sonic wanderlust extends from African Music to post-punk to psych-pop and converges joyously in songs such as "Blastoff" and "Rainbounce," and it's won them high fives from NPR and NME alike.

It's the best album I've heard in a while.

They rule - do yourself a favor & watch their live performances on YouTube - you will instantly become a fan.

If you've never listened to Reptar before, I'd strongly recommend "Oblangle Fizz Y'All," their prior release.

Been following these guys since I caught them 2 years ago opening for Menomena. I had no idea who they were, and ended up calling the venue the next day to ask who the opening band was.
Hailing from Athens, GA (but with strong ties to Asheville, NC, where I saw them), these guys represent a new Southern sound that sounds familiarly pop, but also uniquely funky.
Last fall I had the chance to check them out again at a house party here in AVL, but couldn't go. Glad to see their album is getting some attention, but I have a feeling that that could have been one of my last chances to see them in a small venue without a bunch frat boys and late-coming hipsters.
World, they're your band now.

I was first introduced to Reptar at a live performance in Las Vegas, NV in 2011. That was an ideal way to see the talent in this band at work, and likely gave me more appreciation for their recorded material. Reptar is not afraid to push the envelope, and will meld pop with rock and twist it all up and spit out something entirely original. They appear to be a group of guys who love to have fun and making music...well, that is just a large part of them having their fun. As far as my 5 star rating for "Body Faucet," it was easy to rate it that high after only a couple of listens. They had a subpar review from Pitchfork from a writer who spews a bunch of nonsense and b.s. - and devotes almost nothing in his review to discussing the actual album. A sign (to me) that he probably half-heartedly listened to the album, if he even listened at all.
I think this album works very well as a compilation of songs, but there are seven (7) songs that stand out to me as brilliant and indemnifying the talent of the band. I won't name all of those seven songs...but my three personal favorite songs are 'Isoprene Bath' 'Office Origami' and 'Sweet Sipping Soda.' If you've never listened to Reptar before, I'd strongly recommend "Oblangle Fizz Y'All," their prior release. That album has stood the test of time with me, and is a personal favorite of mine in my music collection. My taste in music is all over the place...so I write this review from a perspective of knowing a huge chunk of indie-style music, and can honestly say...it's very difficult to compare Reptar to anyone else (a good thing). They are striking out on new ground...and it is quite refreshing. Fun and genius combined gives you the musical stylings of Reptar. Oh it's good....really, really good...just give it a few listens, because I'm certain you've never heard anything like it before.

This is the single most enjoyable album I have bought in years. Along side the EP I haven't stopped listening for days. Thank you spotify for tossing Stuck in my ID on the radio. To me they are a little bit of Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit, and LCD Soundsystem rolled into one great mess of their own.

It's the best album I've heard in a while. Legitimately love every song on it, which is rare for me.

They really should be on anyones radar that loves a good live band or anything fun/new/underground. They rule - do yourself a favor & watch their live performances on YouTube - you will instantly become a fan. (Also this specific album is GREAT!)

I write a music blog and this is about to be my album of the year for 2012 (narrowly beating Alabama Shakes' Boys and Girls). The energy in this album is incredible. There's a hint of Vampire Weekend, added to the rhythmic sensibility of Rusted Root, toss in some psychedelics and divide by the '80s and you've got something really unique here. Saw them live opening for Grouplove, too -- it's no joke, they do it live. Key tracks: "Houseboat Babies," "Sweet Sipping Soda," "Sebastian," "Thank You Gliese 370b" and, if you dig something slower, "Three Shining Suns." Check out their two live KEXP sessions if you want a taste.

You will certainly recognize and appreciate the music created by Reptar if you've spent any time with Vampire Weekend or MGMT albums. Still, Reptar has their own unique blend of indie pop tunes. Graham Ulicny's vocal performance is absolutely unique and refreshing. Overall, the album is quite fun and energetic.
