Tusmorke stream Riset Bak Speilet

Tusmorke have made their second album Riset Bak Speilet available for streaming ahead of its release on Friday.

Hear it now via The Quietus.

The Norwegian outfit have previously said the record – translated as The Birch Behind The Looking Glass – was heavily inspired by British influences.

Their record label Svart say: “A 50-minute transmission from the heart of the darkest northern forests, Riset Bak Speilet skilfully channels the spirit of classic British acid folk rock and soaks it in a black witches’ cauldron.

“The spellbinding concoction is at times reminiscent of classic acts like Jethro Tull and the Incredible String band, and also not far off from modern forest magicians such as Hexvessel and Wolf People.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
