FOMO #25: Reptar/Rubblebucket at the Echoplex Sunday, 9.23.12 

Reptar

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:
The band combines pulsating influences from African beats, post-punk and psych-pop to produce a sound of music that you can’t help but move along with to the sonic waves of bliss.

Reptar’s debut LP, Body Faucet, produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Washed Out), is a sing-along banger that would more than likely be a great soundtrack to the next Rugrats feature film. Songs such as “Stuck In My Id” and “Rainbounce” are playful and full of energy — and exactly what every dance floor needs.

If you’re a fan of L.A.’s very own White Arrows or bands such as Passion Pit and .fun, you’ll definitely dig the vibrant taste of Reptar.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

Led by the musical couple of front woman Kalmia Traver and bandleader/trumpeter Alex Toth, Rubblebucket has spent the last four years building a reputation as a band that blurs the lines between psychedelic indie rock, upbeat dance, and radiant, left-field arrangements. The Brooklyn, NY by way of Boston and Vermont band has evolved into something that is “utterly post-genre—horns, synth, guitars, harmonies—a smile-inducing point on the tangent that connects Björk and Broken Social Scene”, which is to say that you never know what you’ll see or hear next.

Don’t miss them at the Echoplex on Sunday, 9.23.12!
