Tusmørke - Ført Bak Lyset (2016)
The third album from this Norwegian band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of flute, organ, bass, drums, guitars and Norwegian vocals.
The band had expanded to a quintet since their 2014 album Riset Bak Speilet. You can read my review here.
Riset Bak Speilet was a psych prog folk album. It was very progressive at times and that gave me some hope for some more complex music....
.... Hope who died on this forty-five minutes long album.
Tusmorke goes back to the early and mid 1970s and the Norwegian folk rock tradition from those days. Those days with pretty straight forward folk rock without any progressive rock influences.
Just as on this album. Most of the songs are really simple and without many interesting details. There are some of it, but not much.
The songs are straight forward and pretty good. But this is not an interesting album and the music is fast-food and not gourmet food. It makes your stomach full, but the head is not happy. Hence the lack of praise for this album.
