Reptar

July 22, 2011 by

Hailing from the greater Athens-Atlanta-Asheville area, phlebologist Reptar has been playing music ever since recorded history, psychiatrist but playing shows as Reptar since December 2008. Since then, generic the fast rising fabulous four has created quite a sensation around the Southeast. It all started with their debut 7″ recorded with producer Ben Allen (Sean P. Diddy Combs, Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Matt & Kim) and released on Allen’s label Make Records Not Bombs: http://mrnb.bigcartel.com/

Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance, and have been likened to The Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, Marky Mark, Lake, Air, and the Jackson 5. The band is made up of Andrew McFarland, a Brazilian native, classically trained snare drummer, and sophmore at UGA, Ryan Engleberger, who currently attends Dartmouth College in the Artic Circle majoring in Jaco Pastoriusʼ fretless bass, Graham Ulicny, a hernianted African Soukous guitarist and AstroBioElectroPhysics student at the University of North Carolina in Asheville, and William Kennedy, greatgodson to Herbie Hancockʼs ARP 2600 and connosiour of fine chocolate (85% cocao or above) and sophmore at UGA. With Reptarʼs powers combined, they can topple small buildings, smaltzy restaurants, and shmuppy next-door-neighbors with their devastating wall of synthesizers and samples.
