Throw Me the Statue

Seattle indie-pop band Throw Me The Statue will head into their fall US tour armed with a new record. That disc, Creaturesque, produced by the band and Phil Ek (who's worked with groups that include The Shins, Built To Spill and Band Of Horses) comes out August 4th on Secretly Canadian. A song from the album is posted above.

Joining TMTS on the August/September trip will be New Zealand's The Brunettes. The tour hits NYC on September 2nd, when both bands play the Mercury Lounge. Tickets are on sale.

The Brunettes last played Brooklyn on Friday, July 10th, at a Bell House show with Animal Hands, Sharon Van Etten and Great Lakes (not Greak Lake Swimmers, with whom Sharon recently toured Europe). Great Lakes is singer/guitarist Ben Crum and prolific NYC drummer Kevin Shea. A video of that band playing in a boat and all upcoming Sharon Van Etten shows are posted below. Tickets are on sale.

How do bands like this get attention? MEH

Sharon Van Etten gets attention because she's an amazing singer, writer and performer who is also an incredibly modest and nice person.

Who pays to promote bands like these?

Ah, come on fellas - Listening to their stuff, its not THAT bad. Certainly better than Vivian Girls or other similarly overblown hyped crap
