Iron Man 3: Heroes Fall
There isn't a good way to describe Reptar. Paul Simon cirque 1986 on acid? That's close. The Bloodhound Gang mixed with Woodstock-era rock? That's also close. It's a crazy/eclectic mix of bizarre instrumentation, lyrics, and melody that equates to an intoxicating, weird, and enjoyable listening experience. The band was introduced to many with their Oblangle Fizz Y'all EP, now they've followed that up with their debut album Body Faucet.
Body Faucet is twelve songs that are bizarrely named but even more bizarre just to listen to. This is a good thing when the band is kicking off a song with a crazy intro or hammering out a crazy minute of instrumental bliss in the middle of a track. There is another side of that. When you make something that's purely artistic like Reptar did here, not everything works with everyone. There are different parts that will be a little too odd. Me personally, I found it a little too off the wall when beast voice was used in a harmony as a part of the chorus. There are a few different examples like that scattered throughout the album, but there’s more good than bad.
Reptar has some substantially crazy elements to them on their debut LP. That's both for the good and the bad. One thing is certain, it's worth checking out just to listen to something that's unlike anything else.
