Pioneering the nascent rock subgenre Yacht Psych (and believing they coined the descriptive phrase), Reptiel rose from the ashes of conspiro-rockers Thee Druggles, indie phenoms Thee More Shallows, and cult-rock band The Cubby Creatures. Reptiel’s self-titled debut CD traverses many waters, from the searing psych-pop of the opening track “Tunnel to Tomorrow,” to the profuse prog of “She Is Sound,” to the smooth-sailing sounds of “Nummer.”

The band's lineup consists of Alec Way (occasional collaborator with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, the Grandfather of Kraut Rock), Brian Weaver (who helped compose the infectious psychedelic pop of The Cubby Creatures), Jason Gonzales (one-time multi-instrumentalist with Thee More Shallows, beloved in the UK and Europe), and Jason Yakich (former lead guitarist of Thee Druggles).
