Some bands are playing eccentric, but it does not seem credulous. Oslo-based Tusmørke is real eccentric and in addition very productive. Osloborgerlig Tusmørke – Vardøger Og Utburder, Vol.1 is the third offering from Tusmørke in 12 months. The album is a concept album about various local history and myth and this is definitely the best album from Tusmørke. I have already been very, very impressed and have been incredibly fond of the music on the album.
I do not usually boast music so much, but there are varied moods that are incredibly fascinating and the music is very well written. The album is also 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.
