God damnit. Why do I have such ADD about this particular post? I created this whole recurring series so that I would never forget to actually update my blog at least once a day, but I got involved in a conversation with a friend (who went to Bonnaroo last year) to give me advice on how to prepare for this year’s Bonnaroo (it’s next week), and I completely forgot that I needed to do this. So, let’s make this an easy choice. One of the bands that the company I work for shot at this year’s SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX was Georgia freak rockers, Reptar. Besides their awesome and nostalgic name, they’re an awesome distillation of three of my favorite bands. They’re Animal Collective meets Modest Mouse meets the Talking Heads. You can’t beat that. They released their first official music video today (off their debut album Body Faucet) for the single “Sebastian.” It’s so catchy. This band has a ton of great tunes and I really hope the brutal (and very questionable review they got from Pitchfork) doesn’t stop people from checking out this awesome band.
