Listen: The Dirty Three ‘Toward the Low Sun’ Album Stream

Written by Brayden Darke on February 21, 2012

Iconic Australian three piece Dirty Three will be releasing their new album Toward The Low Sun this Friday, the first since 2005′s Cinder.

Toward The Low Sun was produced by Casey Rice and Dirty Three in Melbourne. The album is not a cosy, nice-to-be-back, return to the comfort zone, however, there is an energy and a raw excitement evident from the first electrifying opening moments through to the album’s finale. In Warren’s words, “Dirty Three has always been about the way we play together and feed off each other. We wanted this one to be a return to the more improvised and instinctive approach of the earlier recordings”.

The band, made up of guitarist Mick Turner, drummer Jim White and violinist Warren Ellis, who some of you may know better as a member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, will also be touring the new album along with their most loved and influential works, including Ocean Songs, Cinder, Horse Stories in Australia next month.
