Portland group Reptaliens released their sophomore LP VALIS on Captured Tracks this past Friday (4/26), and I’ve been lucky enough to dig on it for a bit before its release. It’s one of those records where I wish I knew about it before I locked in the tracks for my playlists Essential Oil Dimension and Rose Garden 2AM. Their lightweight, groovy, and uncanny sound is a perfect match to exist in those universes. Smeared, romantic and sincere.
I still really dig one of their singles “Venetian Blinds”, but you should listen to the whole thing (pasted below) if you get the chance. The weather is nice this weekend – a perfect pairing.
