Third is the latest album release from the London-based instrumental four piece, Tout, and its most ambitious record to date. Drawing on a range of influences including Neil Young, Dirty Three and Do Make Say Think, Third's ten instrumental tracks evoke sprawling vistas, outback lands, expanse and movement. Emotive viola rides atop country-tinged rhythms and thudding double bass. Distorted guitars occasionally emerge to bring dirt and dissonance to the highly crafted melodies.
