New Reptar and Domestica tracks; Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Waiting Room; Lincoln Exposed tonight

Reptar has never really drawn lines around what it’s willing to do. It’s hard to foster expectations for a band that, from the outset, has relied as much on new wave as on classic rock as on contemporary indie.

So when the brassy ‘80s hook on “Ice Black Sand” comes into carry a track that sounds otherwise like Yeasayer on Odd Blood, it might be a surprise, but only in the pleasant sense.

The track premiered on Spin yesterday, along with word of more Reptar tour stops and a release date for the new album. Lurid Glow, the band’s follow-up to 2012’s Body Faucet, will be out March 31 on Joyful Noise.

Reptar has added sets at Savannah Stopover Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival and Slingshot Music Festival in Athens. Athens is the band’s hometown, but frontman Graham Ulicny moved to Omaha last year.

Catch Reptar at Slowdown on April 14.
