KARISMA RECORDS: Limited edition LP on orange vinyl.
The eccentric and super productive Oslo-based progressive folk/psych/rock band Tusmørke is ready with their third album in 12 months. They explore various local history and myth in Oslo in this omnibus. Yes, it is a concept album. At the same time, it is a collection of curios. Vardøger are premonitions of the immediate future, a strong feeling preceding an actual event, or rather appearance. Just before a person arrives in a place, his footsteps precede him and there is the sound of a door opening. No one is there. Then, later, he comes. Utburder are infants carried into the woods at birth. Their cries resound at night as a haunting presence. So here they are, signs of things to come and sounds of the unwanted. This is a rather roundabout way of saying “demos and outtakes”. This is part one of a series of compilations of songs that don’t fit in on the albums proper. Tusmørke moves so fast that sometimes things are left behind. Also, they write so much material that they can’t always wait for proper studio t me. There is so much in the pipeline that they could have their own line of pipes, called Tusmeerschaumørke. Hence the need for these compilations.
