New Music - Throw Me The Statue

Throw Me The Statue will release his debut record Moonbeams, along with its playful and semi-erotic artwork, via Secretly Canadian this week. The “he” I’m referring to is principle statue Scott Reitherman. Here’s the first single, “About To Walk”, and the very Bishop Allen-like “Lolita” - both pleasing stabs at pure bedroom-born Pacific Northwest indie-pop. Try saying that 3 times fast. The songs, and album, combine sleek sounding acoustic guitar and hyperactive drums with introversive blips and bleeps and startlingly delicious harmonies.

This, that great new Tapes ’n Tapes song, and Monday’s Samamidon post (scroll down for both)are helping to make my feelings about the recent lack of inspired new music go away.

Baskerville Records, who originally released this album last year, has 3 more mp3s up on their media page. Throw Me The Statue will play the Mercury Lounge in NY on April 9. Full tour dates here.
