Throw Me In The River is the third full length album from Melbourne's, The Smith Street Band. Multidimensional and full of their trademark earnest storytelling, it too serves as a snapshot of the last few years of their hectic lives. Often dark but always honest, the album is a virtual passport to their global rise, with songs written in Winnipeg, Salt Lake City, Calgary, London, New York and North Melbourne amongst other places.
Nestling down in a cottage in the pristine surrounds of Forrest, in The Otways, Victoria, the album saw the band team up with Bomb The Music Industry’s Jeff Rosenstock as producer, Jonathan Low (The War On Drugs, The National) as mixer and once again work with close friends Matt Voigt (Don't Fuck With Our Dreams) and Sam Johnson (Sunshine & Technology) to engineer the record.
With universally praised live shows, a touring schedule penciled in almost a year in advance and a hunger to take on the world, The Smith Street Band have consistently been at the top of their game, becoming not only one of Australia’s hardest working bands, but also most respected. On Throw Me In The River their musicianship and songwriting shines through, further enhanced by their travels and experiences.
