Baskerville Hill Records — the same label which brought us Black Bear — is now proudly presenting Throw Me the Statue’s Moonbeams. It’s some good stuff!
MP3: Throw Me the Statue – Lolita
The drum machine beauty of this song reminds me of early Magnetic Fields songs, but the rest is pure northwestern pop. It keeps from being too simple, as most disciples of Tullycraft wind up, but sticks to what works best: a great melody and some bare-bones instrumentation. Definitely hit up their myspace and check out “About to Walk” and “Yucatan Gold.”
