JAGGED BAPTIST CLUB: Reptile Super Show: LP

Right of the bat, the snazzy production and dark undertones on this record had my attention. The more I listened to it the more it felt like a mixtape of songs—with a commonality of influences—to give it cohesion. Reptile Super Show is dark, alternative, catchy post-punk, with enough grit and scuff marks to make you want to come back for another listen. These guys have their own vibe going, but there are echoes of Suicide, Soft Kill, FIDLAR, Savages, and the Icarus Line. –Ryan Nichols (Chain Letter, chainlettercollective@gmail.com)
