Throw Me The Statue: Creaturesque
Buy! - (Secretly Canadian)
Formerly the one-man project of Seattle’s Scott Reitherman, Throw Me The Statue evolved into a full band shortly after the release of their promising debut album Moonbeams. Their eagerly anticipated 2nd full-length was produced by Phil Ek, and he brings greater clarity, punch and attention to detail to the band’s catchy indie-pop, which is made even more inviting by the increased number of brighter melodies and uptempo arrangements. Moonbeams was a fine beginning for the band, and they’ve managed to top it with one of the best Northwest releases of the year. 7/22/2009 - Don Yates
