They live up to their name. The globally distributed Australian all-star trio The Dirty Three meanders through the canyons of human emotion with distorted violin and bouzouki, guitar and piano and drums. They are circumnavigating meters so far that one can hardly speak of syncopations. Each of her instrumental tracks is a deep abyss. Their songs are actually much more accessible than in the past. Their last album was already seven years ago. Especially violinist Warren Ellis was busy in the meantime with the Bad Seeds, Grinderman and various soundtracks. Especially the deep black song chimeras of Grinderman also make their way into "Toward The Low Sun". The trio's range of instruments and thus its sound spectrum has become much richer. Each song tells a story of freedom, independence and niches in the wilderness in a largely gentrified world. Although the band can do without verbal messages, this music is of a painful honesty. Life could be so wonderfully complicated if it weren't so shockingly simple in the end.
