Tuesday Althing: Lumsk — Skip under lide

Welcome to another Tuesday Althing! Here’s the third track from the album Asmund Frægdegjaevar by the Norwegian band Lumsk.  This vid has some decent pictures of the band and, though it ends with an image of a gnome, the sound quality is good. (Thanks StalkerBenny!)

Here’s what this song — Skip under lide — is about, from the album liner notes:

Guarding the ship
Ashore, Asmund wonders if his two brothers would want to join him and go into Trollebotten, or if they would rather guard his ship while he is away. They are both young, and the lust for life is stronger than the urge for glory, [so] they choose not to face death within the realm of trolls.


Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back next Tuesday to check out one of the best songs on this album — and a proper music video to boot!
