When I heard that TBE super faves Throw Me The Statue had a new album out, Creaturesque, I was pretty excited. When “Ancestors” was the first track I heard off of it I was fist pumping and may have even squealed. However, much like spotting a swimming pool through the bushes on a hot day and then running closer only to find out out it is filled with muck, Creaturesque dissapointed upon further listening. Now let’s be clear, it could very well be a fantastic album but I am a huge fan of their debut, Moonbeams, and had high hopes. Sean from eMusic is into it and says “Creaturesque sways and swings where it needs to.” I feel like a lot of the beats are familiar from Moonbeams and the variety of vibes and energy levels are missing. I guess the fact that TMTS has chosen the uninspired “Hi-Fi Goon” (get it here) as the lead single (and not Ancestors) just shows we are on different pages this time around. Anyway, Ancestors is so good that I will still wear my TMTS shirt with pride (It’s also super freakin soft).
