Throw Me the Statue, 'Creaturesque' (Secretly Canadian)

6
Creaturesque
Critical Mass
Label: Secretly Canadian

by Daniel Cook

This Seattle-based band's second album represents an accomplished progression for singer-songwriter Scott Reitherman, with highlights "Tag" and "The Outer Folds" showcasing robust, filled-out arrangements that aspire to the dramatic grandeur of the National. And while Reitherman hasn't abandoned the project's indie-pop nucleus, he still cycles through one too many genres (twee, Casiotone pop, indie rock, et al.). The eclecticism is refreshing on the jammy, Built to Spill-like "Hi-Fi Goon," but enjoying the sum of Creaturesque's shifting parts can be a taxing proposition.
