Album Review – Creaturesque by Throw Me The Statue

Creaturesque_

Released today in the UK.

Creaturesque is the 2nd album from Seattle band Throw Me The Statue. The band is essentially Scott Reitherman and a revolving cast of friends.

It’s a perky little album. Reitherman’s vocals bounce around the falsetto range and the tracks feel fresh and tight. Think ‘The Dodos’ on a sunny beach with cocktails.

My favourite tracks were probably ‘Ancestors’ – a song that brought Snow Patrol to mind, in a good way – and ‘Noises’ – a very well crafted tune. Honourable mention to ‘Dizzy From The Fall’ and ‘Baby You’re Bored’.

Overall, a very decent album that is perfect for putting on when a quick blast of cheery indie is required. 7.5/10 from me.
