Reptar are a music band from Athens, Georgia. Made of Andrew McFarland, Ryan Engelberger, William Kennedy and Graham Patrick Ulicny who all lovingly recorded their debut EP Oblangle Fizz Y'all (Vagrant Records) in early 2011. They also performed at the 2011 Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Governor's Ball music festivals. When I look to my left and right I see my friends. My friends on drums, my friends on bass, my friends synthesize organic music, my friends play guitars all just to put into sound our every-days and our really wannas and our never gonnas. Nasty trouble awaits those who embark on journeys without sonic pleasures. Reptar wants to realize this potential in a brighter context, locked into a holy beat and locked in a sexy romantic dance closet. Really want to release that anxious stuff? Earth flowers? Want to feel that good kind of nasty and evoke the green pastures of some crazy reality? Let's try.
Icky Blossoms bloomed from the blizzards of 2011 in Omaha ,Ne. Consisting of three multi-dimensional artists, Derek Pressnall, Nik Fackler and Sarah Bohling, Icky Blossoms draw from old friendships, rhythmic experiments and a love for robust melodies to create music stretching from hazy pop to pulsing dance. Music that feels familiar yet so unfamiliar, like the sun heating your face, old haunts, or falling in love.
