after a time

Feb 16 2017

My new album, After a Time, is out today. It was recorded & mixed by Tim Kevin at his Tempe River Studios in Sydney. Bree van Reyk played drums, Joey Fuse played bass, Mick Turner played guitar, Marcus Whale played saxophone, Jens Birchall played cello, and Mark Kozelek sang. Tim and I did the rest. Cover photograph by Zoe Bell. You can read all about it here and you can buy it or stream it here. I hope y’all enjoy.

SEE!

Feb 16 2017

Thanks to everyone who has sent emails/messages asking after See! (my children’s album). It has indeed been out of print for some time on CD and is also currently unavailable digitally as well. But not for long! I am finally getting around to re-releasing the album, and it will be available on all digital platforms (worldwide) soon, and back on CD for sale on my March tour.

Early reviews for ‘After a Time’

Feb 08 2017

Some early reviews have come in for After a Time. Rolling Stone has given the record  four stars and described it as “a meandering stream of textures that conjure their own world of dappled light and boundless hope.” The Music calls it “simple and gorgeous”, also with four stars. And the Brag says, “Even though After A Time has much more of a full-band energy than Throsby’s previous releases Team and A Loud Call, there’s a peacefulness to this album. It feels raw, honest and is easy to get lost in… Some critics have been calling this Throsby’s strongest album yet, and they might just be right”. Thanks guys!

The album is released on February 17 (on vinyl, CD and digital in Australia; and digital-only for the rest of the world). If you preorder it now from JB Hi-Fi, you’ll get a bonus signed bookmark! Why not involve yourself in this adorably ’90s promotional offer.
