Toward the Low Sun

Toward the Low Sun

Jump-started by the bristling guitar loop of “Furnace Skies,” 2012’s Toward the Low Sun announces the Dirty Three’s return with immediate oomph after a seven-year break between albums. As much as they capitalize on that clamorous introduction, Australia’s widely traveled instrumental trio still stretch way out for their signature fiddle-swept vistas. But they also display close-quarters tenderness on “Rain Song,” as if they were huddled next to a nursery and trying not to stir a sleeping baby.
