Throw Me the Statue: <em>Creaturesque</em>

Band's sophomore effort is full of life

The expression "quarter-life crisis" gets thrown around pretty liberally these days (it even has its own Wikipedia entry), and is as often a point of contention as it is a reassurance for the demographic it supposedly affects. With their second full-length, Creaturesqueproducer Phil Ek (Built to Spill, The Shins), the band captures the odd we're-young-but-wish-we-were-younger nostalgia of the so-called crisis while still creating an album that will appeal to an audience outside the twentysomething set.
