Bands that hail from Athens, Georgia, seem to be particularly apt in the art of funky beat creation. Reptar
, just one of the latest bands to spring forth from the South, makes breezy, easy-to-digest electro-funk. The band recently announced the release date of its debut album, Body Faucet
(hmm). Check for it on May 1 on Vagrant Records.
Take a listen to the album's first track, "Sebastian," at Paste.
Catch Reptar this Thursday, March 8, at the Bottleneck. Support from Tangent Arc ($9, all ages, doors at 8 p.m.).
