College kids make the darndest music. Reptar's debut was recognized as a collection of crazy phantasms when it was released, and Lurid Glow promises to go in the same direction - but bigger, better and a tad more orchestrated. Expect danceable afrobeats with disorienting breaks, all soaked in an optimistic twee sauce.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 26 March 2015

It’s electronic pop day in my bleak corner of the office but whereas you can imagine Jerry Paper sitting alone in his study, Reptar sound like the kind of guys to get the party started. There’s a lot of Cindy Lauper in opener ‘No One Will Ever Love You’ and that’s not something you can say about every record we get in at the towers. They use shit ‘80’s sounds to create vibrant, bouncable pop that reminds me of the likes of Passion Pit  -on ‘Cable’ they add New Wave guitars and augment the high energy vocals with a kind of growl. This is the sort of stuff that will appeal to those who liked the also rans on the nascent, ‘80’s MTV.

It might be because I’m reviewing this before the 9am watershed but they just aren’t getting my party started. Maybe less boyband-isms, more tunes could help or I might just have to face up to the fact that I’m too old and half dead to enjoy it.
