Today I highlight another cool band to emerge from the moss strewn streets of Seattle. Throw Me The Statue (TMTS among avid fans) is the band product of Scott Reitherman. In 2004, he began self-releasng lo-fi indie pop music on his own label, Baskerville Hill. Reitherman as a talented musician utilized synthesized instruments to create his unique sounds. His arsenal of instuments including drum machines and glockenspiels were aided by friends including Casey Foubert of Pedro the Lion. Reitherman included Aaron Goldman, Jarred Grimes, and Charlie Smith in early 2007 to form the band as currently performing. Their debut album, Moonbeams, was released on the Baskerville Hill label. As their popularity increased, signing to a full-time label was necessary. The band chose Secretly Canadian to re-release their first album in 2008. Check out some of their tracks on my playlist below. The band is currently on tour in venues across the United States. Look here for dates near you and other info about the band. Happy listening.
