ANCHOR & HOPE / BELLA UNION / TOUCH AND GO 2000
At first, it hardly sounds as if a tune will emerge, but one does, slowly, mysteriously, and with all the rough, poetic eloquence that has become Dirty Three’s trademark. Compressing gently strummed guitars, sweeping violin, and hints of percussion into forms that suggest everything from mournful Celtic airs to stirring Baltic melodies to the buzzing cacophony of Sonic Youth, Dirty Three are able to sound remarkably fresh and innovative, yet still raw and improvisationally energetic. Whatever You Love, You Are, is yet another wonderful, beguiling, and beautiful piece of music.
