Quietus Mix 64: The Dirty Three Take You Outback
Luke Turner , June 7th, 2012 11:23

We're shitting excited that we're off to see Dirty Three at Cargo tonight. We're even more excited to present you Mick Turner's mix for the Quietus

We've always felt that there's been something a little Deliverance about the music of the Dirty Three - their askew rhythms, Warren Ellis' lunatic screaming into th'ether, aggressive tumult guitar, and general men-who've-dragged-victims-through-a-hedge-backwards vibe. Their music, evocative, mournful, romantic, is like those dastardly bastards of the badlands sat around a few bottles of raw Bourbon, meditating over what they've just done as the dark night presses in around them. Their new mix for the Quietus is similarly evocative listen, reflective but with a quiet, unforced intensity. The Dirty Three's latest album Toward The Low Sun is out now, and they play Shepherd's Bush Empire in November. For info and tickets, go here
