Continuing their exploration of indie-electro-guitar-pop-weirdness, Reptar returns with their second full-length album, Lurid Glow, out March 31st on Joyful Noise Recordings. A diverse amalgamation of sounds and styles delineate the music of Reptar, culminating from the band’s disparate array of influences. Comparisons can be made to bands like Talking Heads and MGMT, but Reptar simultaneously showcases musicianship in the heritage of Frank Zappa, Rush, Mike Patton, and Tortoise – creating a blend of party music suitable for music nerds.
Three years after their Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) produced debut, the Icky Blossoms will release their second album – Mask – on May 12, 2015 (Saddle Creek). They continue to evolve their sound, maintaining a core electronic groove, but blending it with the drums, bass, and screaming guitars of their chaotic live show.
