Reptar – “Sebastian”

posted on May.02, 2012

Reptar, an alternative band from Athens, Georgia, is indeed named after the Rugrats dinosaur; singer-guitarist Graham Ulicny originally tried to name the band “Invisible Boyfriend,” which was acknowledged as the stupidest band name ever, so they went with Reptar because “It is the second stupidest band name we have ever heard.” Yes, that explanation is straight from their website, www.reptarmusic.com; also on their website you can listen to their music, reminiscent of Vampire Weekend’s sound, and if you Like them on Facebook, you can download Orifice Origami for free. I have chosen to share Sebastian here because that song is free on iTunes this week (as of 5/1/12). Both songs mentioned are from Reptar’s debut album, “Body Faucet,” which came out May 1, 2012. It looks like they’re touring with Grouplove, but their NYC show in June is sold out. Womp.
