While the next band in the Tra.kz Artist Spotlight recently joined Twitter, Throw Me the Statue is no stranger to readers of Evolving Music. You can read our interview with frontman, Scott Reitherman, here. You can even make your very own remix of TMTS’ Yucatan Gold here using MixMatchMusic’s Remix Wizard.
As Secretly Canandian Records prepares to release TMTS’ new EP, Purpleface, on February 17th, the boys who want statues thrown at them have decided to give you an early taste. Their song “Ship” is an understated yet inventive gem in which TMTS fuses rich, textured layers with their unique indie-pop melodies. TMTS has spent the majority of 2008 touring the US and Europe supporting its critically acclaimed debut, Moonbeams. While on the road, TMTS has explored the depths of its sound, recreating its playful mystique, and emerging as a proficient and an even more engaging live act. Purpleface is the direct result of this time, albeit showing a bit of a softer side than its predecessor. Word on the street is that TMTS is currently recording their next record in Seattle.
