To those who grew up watching Rugrats on Nickelodeon, Reptar conjures an image of a green dinosaur that looks like Godzilla, but that may soon change if a 4-piece jam band from Athens gets their music to more ears. That’ll likely happen, too, since Ben H. Allen is their producer. Allen’s production resume includes Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion and Gnarls Barkley, not to mention he’s also a member of The Constellations.

Reptar is Graham Ulicny on vocals and guitar, Andrew McFarland on drums, William Kennedy on keys, and Ryan Engelberger on bass, and word is that their live shows are rowdy as hell. You can see how given their upbeat sound, just-the-right-amount-of infused electronics, and Ulicny’s high-energy vocals. Check out the video of “Blast Off” below to see for yourself.
