Reptilians is the third studio album by the Portland-based electronic indie rock band Starfucker. Departing from the light feel of their previous work, Jupiterthe twelve-track Reptilians includes lyrics by Joshua Hodges about death and the end of the world, while Mona Vegas - Starfucker - Reptilians not sounding depressing. One of the ways these theories are supported is using samples of British-American philosopher Alan Watts in some of the tracks.
Finished in November and released on March 8, by Polyvinyl Recordstwo singles were issued from Reptilianswhich was "Julius" in late and "Bury Us Alive" in January Upon its release, the album earned mostly positive reviews from music criticswith praise going towards the band's Soulfly - Various - The Best Of Monsterforce Volume 1 from their previous records and re-listening value.
On the American Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, it entered at number One of the theories is that there's an alien race that are called Reptilians that control the human race and like to make them their slaves.

We had some other Soon The Moon - Godz* - 2 — and I always Mona Vegas - Starfucker - Reptilians to have a song that is the title track -- and that song was already called "Reptilians" so we just thought it was perfect.
Reptilians was produced and engineered by Hodges and Jake Portrait. On tour, he wrote his songs with a MIDI keyboard and added live instruments when he got home. He also used an old analog drum machine in the process. Ryan Biornstad said the group wanted to depart from the light feel of their previous album Jupiterbecause "we're at a point now where we're getting older and touring a lot, and we're staying true to what we feel is our sound, and it's growing, and it's evolving, and we're not interested in making an album that's just like the first one.
Annihilator - Schizo Deluxe making it as an evolution. Starfucker Easy Dub - King Tubby - Fatman Presents: Unleashed Dub From King Tubbys Studio Vol.
1 death is responsible for giving meaning to life, which is expressed in the record using snippets of British-American philosopher Alan Watts talking about the band's same beliefs about death, "vibrant crescendos, explosive drum beats, and layered synth melodies that drive a theatrical live show where dance party meets Roxy Music.
The second half of Reptilians becomes toned down and more mid-tempo. The cover art for Reptilians was illustrated and designed one of the group's friends, Sohale Kevin Darouian. I didn't give him too much direction besides that.

Newest graduate from this school is Starfucker. The Portland, Oregon-based band's second album, Reptiliansindicates it graduated with high honors. More varied reviews were focused on the group's lack of maturity, originally and lack of value for repeated listens. I think history will keep repeating itself for these guys. All lyrics are written by Joshua Hodges; all music is composed by Starfucker.
