Earlier this year Dirty Three returned with their rejuvenating work ‘Toward The Low Sun.’ Many of the full-blown classic albums released over the years on their own Anchor And Hope label and the independent label, Bella Union, come from the legendary Australian trio. The elements of violin (Warren Ellis), guitar (Mick Turner) and drums (Jim White) combine to evoke an overwhelming spectrum of human emotions. On ‘Toward The Low Sun’, their eighth album, they remain peerless as improvisers of instrumental intensity and beauty. Spanning Bella Union’s lifespan, Dirty Three albums ‘Ocean Songs’ (1998), ‘Whatever You Love You Are’, ‘Cinder’ (2005) and the latest ‘Toward The Low Sun’ (2012) firmly grace the music world. As Ellis has said, “There is a dialogue within the group that we are still keen to explore.” Witness Dirty Three’s captivating music live when the band play the Button Factory, Dublin on November 23rd.
