The folks at Karisma Records have surprised everyone by, almost literally, pulling a rabbit out of their hat with the upcoming release from their new signing, Prog Folk Rockers TUSMØRKE, whose new album is very different indeed in both concept and guest artists. Titled "Bydyra", which translated means "Urban Wildlife", this will be the fifth full-length album from the Norwegians. What is surprising about it is that this is the first album that TUSMØRKE have written specifically for, and performed with, children.

Coming in with 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" TUSMØRKE have succeeded in blending their unique take on Prog Rock with a substantial dose of humour 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.Featuring members of WOBBLER, JORDSJØ and ALWANZATAR, TUSMØRKE's lineup fields an almost dizzying variety of instruments, and is comprised of Benediktator on vocals, bass, acoustic guitars, Glockenspiel, jaw harp, assorted percussion and loads of handclaps, Krizla on vocals, flute and electronics, HlewagastiR on drums and percussion, Dauinghorn av Jordsjø on electric guitar, and The Phenomenon Marxo Solina on Steinway & Sons grand piano, MiniMoog model D, Solina Strings Ensemble, Mellotron M400, SCI Prophet-5, Arp Axxe, Arp Pro Soloist and Lindholm Spinet.
