Reptar were the most talked-up discovery at this year’s SXSW. The Athens band bring a slapstick cartoony sense of giddy fun to the elecltro indie-pop party. I saw one Austin show where they literally took the roof off.
They were playing in the carpark of automotive repair shop, and the temporary structure they were playing under caught the wind and actually took off mid-song, crashing down onto the sounddesk to their left. They did a god job of keeping-up playing regardless.
