In 2006, Throsby returned to the studio with Dupe to record her second album, Under the Town, which featured a larger ensemble of accompanists but maintained the intimate feel of the debut. Reviews were again enthusiastic, and Throsby launched a U.S. tour opening for former Slint
guitarist David Pajo. Featuring guest vocals by Bonnie "Prince" Billy
, and backed by members of Lambchop
and Silver Jews, A Loud Call followed in 2008 and was her most well-received album to date, garnering critical praise and landing in the Top 40 of Australia's album chart. Two years later, ABC Music
issued her children's album, See!, and back on Spunk
, she released her fifth studio LP, Team, in 2011. It reached number 41 in Australia.
Throsby didn't release any music for the next several years as she switched focus to literary endeavors. Her debut novel, Goodwood, was published by Allen & Unwin in the fall of 2016. Her first album in nearly six years, After a Time followed a few months later in February 2017. ~ Mark Deming & Marcy Donelson, Rovi
