Various Praise

As Marlan Rosa opens, one could mistake it for a new Dirty Three record, with Turner’s drifting guitar work subtly swishing under a plaintive violin, but it’s Jessica Billey, not Warren Ellis, with bow in hand. For the rest of the record, Turner continues to work his layered magic, whether it’s scattered percussion or simple, spare guitar work; the whole is a more consistently satisfying album than Turner’s solo debut, Tren Phantasma. It’s a satisfying double dose of Australia’s favourite instrumentalists while we wait for Dirty Three’s return. (Best Boy)
