Artist Bio:

From their Wikipedia entry... Throw Me the Statue was formed by Scott Reitherman after he began self-releasing CDs of buzzy, lo-fi indie pop in 2004. Friends, including Pedro the Lion member Casey Foubert, pitched in to help as Reitherman added instruments including drum machines and glockenspiels to round out his sound. A full band came into shape in early 2007 as Throw me the Statue's debut album Moonbeams was released on Reitherman's Baskerville Hill label and later on Secretly Canadian. They have been featured on Pitchfork Media and NPR and have received airplay on the independent Seattle radio station KEXP. In 2008 Throw Me the Statue toured the US, played at SXSW, Bumbershoot, the Sasquatch Festival, and opened for Cake in Seattle. The album Moonbeams made it to #16 of 100 on the Amazon Music Best of 2008 Editors Picks list. Their second album, Creaturesque was released in August 2009. They also performed a version of Huey Lewis and the News's hit, "If This Is It", for an upcoming Huey Lewis tribute album.[Read More]
