They are The Reptilian, and their Boy’s Life album (Count Your Lucky Stars) has been gathering a collective of approving thumbs from many. People love their brand of uncontrolled rock, although with many calling them “math rock” there has to be some kind of control and organization. What people like about them is how you can’t tell.
As they head out on tour, the group just recorded music tonight for a 4-way split LP, which means an album with them and contributions from their Count Your Lucky Stars labelmates: Annabel, Joie De Vivre, and Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate). With new music freshly recorded, they hit the road tomorrow. Here is their on road path:
