Throw Me The Statue wrap up, but never disguise, their hooky pop with an orgy of ear pleasing percussive treats. The songs on their full length debut, Moonbeams, have been carefully assembled, or carefully edited, to leave air between the instruments and voices leaving us with only the best candy at the bottom of our lo-fi indie Halloween bags.
Fortunate enough to be helmed by the talented Scott Reitherman, Throw Me The Statue easily gives us one of the best Shins songs not written by James Mercer... and that song is "Conquering Kids"... but that isn't all these guys can do, visit their myspace to hear more.
