RIYL: MUNYA, Barrie, Slow Pulp
Label: Captured Tracks
Cole and Bambi Browning never intentionally sought out to start a band, but after bringing on Julian Kowalski on guitar and Tyler Verigin on drums to help give their humble tunes a bit more body, Reptaliens became a reality.Â Captured Tracks quickly took notice and put their debut album out and the momentum picked up significantly, touring with STRFKR, Cults and Of Montreal.Â This past April, Reptaliens released their sophomore follow-up Valis, a continued trek down their lazy Sunday indie rock vibe, no doubt inspired by the warbled jangle from labelmate Mac Demarco.Â And while Reptaliens employ some of the same studio effects as Mac, they’re capable of laying down some serious grooves underneath that lofi sheen.Â If you loved their debut FM-2030, you’ll like where they’re taking their sound on this new one.
Captured Tracks still has a handful of copies left of the pink vinyl, so grab one after the ‘buy’ link before they finally disappear.Â Listen to the entire album below.
With FM-2030, Reptaliens divulged tales from an etic: outsiders perspective of cult kidnappings, alien abductions, and sci-fi speculations towards potential future realities. In VALIS, the lense is turned inwards and, through the looking glass, the 12 tracks provides an emic glimpse towards the feelings and situations of the subjective experience.
Pink Vinyl is limited to 350 copies.
