Forthcoming: The Dirty Three ‘Toward The Low Sun’

What: Toward The Low Sun by The Dirty Three.
When: February 24 via Anchor & Hope/Remote Control.
Key notes: First album for the Melbourne-Paris-Brooklyn trio (Warren Ellis, Jim White and Mick Turner) since 2005's Cinder. Produced by Casey Rice and Dirty Three. Recorded in Melbourne at Head Gap studios and mixed at Sing Sing. Warren Ellis: “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.”
From the presser: “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.”
