Like I said in the previous mixtape post, Athens, GA-based Reptar is one of my bands to watch this year (Alabama Shakes pretty much has 2012 on lock though…). Plus, I love that each time I Wikipedia “Reptar”, I get a childhood flashback.

The four-piece set a great precedent with their EP Oblangle Fizz Y’all (stream here) and debut album Body Faucet will be released on May 1st via Vagrant Records. With production by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out), how can you lose? The latest single “Orifice Origami” features sunny synth and Graham Ulicny’s passioned vocals and could easily play on your next summer playlist.

Stream below and DL at RCRDLBL.
