Norwegian prog-folk rockers Tusmorke return on Karisma Records with their fifth full-length effort Bydyra ("Urban Wildlife"). Featuring a whopping 15 tracks, Bydyra is composed of two original mini musicals that were written specifically for a local children's school in Oslo. It is a unique work that explores the relatively "grown up" subjects of urban wildlife, the skyrocketing prices of housing in Oslo, the financial crisis, social issues, global warming, and good and bad magic. With Bydyra Tusmorke have succeeded in blending their unique take on prog-rock with a substantial dose of humor to create an album that will be enjoyed equally by both children, who will be enchanted by the characters and their adventures, and by adults, who will succumb to the psychedelic prog folk overtones. It is a journey filled with magical creatures that serve to charm and educate at the same time.
