THROW ME THE STATUE Announces New LP, Creaturesque

We are uber-stoked to announce Creaturesque (released Aug. 4 in the US, and Aug. 17 in the UK),the new album from Seattle pop-rock outfit THROW ME THE STATUE. Originally the one-man project of multifaceted musician and songwriter Scott Reitherman, TMTS has since expanded to a quartet with drummer Jarred Grimes, and multi-instrumentalists Aaron Goldman and Charlie Smith. The album is produced by TMTS and Phil Ek (The Shins, Built To Spill, Band Of Horses), and while the band retains much of the lo-fi bliss found on their critically acclaimed debut Moonbeams, Phil Ek’s mixing of Creaturesque brings the band’s maximalist pop sensibilities to new heights.

Perhaps more sonically upbeat than its predecessor, Creaturesque’s details are at times painted in both optimistic and sobering tones. Reitherman’s scattershot poetics touch on an array of ideas; it’s oppressive American machisimo and Suburbanite sexuality. It’s soft drugs and convertible cars. It’s the struggle for higher expectations within the mess of modern life, and when wrapped up in the structures of TMTS’ sure-handed tunes it’s an all too delicious combination.
