Alpine Those Myriads ~ Kaleidoscopic music for the open-minded.

Announcing the title of our third EP

12th of June 2014 | share on Twitter or Facebook

The exact release date for our third album is still in the blue, but the title of the EP isn´t. I´d like to stimulate your snoopy juices by trickling some info about the EP in the coming months…so without further ado, the new EP is called “Top syd turvye”. Delicious expression, innit? I´ve learned that it´s an older variant of the expression Topsy turvy. I chose the older spelling ´cause it looked better on paper. It can mean many things:

  1. The top is now where the bottom should be.
  2. A reversed condition/order.
  3. A state of disorder or confusion.
  4. Out of balance because of intoxication.

I feel that it perfectly encapsulates the story that develops throughout the record. The lyrics on the EP are one continuous story and thus it may be described as a concept. I loathe the word concept though and much prefer the word story, but more on this later…

“Top syd turvye” will be released sometime this Fall. I had hopes to release it on vinyl, but I simply can´t afford it ´cause all my savings went into the vinyl edition of “Psyche”. The wee change i´ve earned from “Psyche” have gone into food and bills. Let it be an onslaught of vinyl hungry people that´d like to get some genuine kaleidoscopic music this Summer - that´s my wish.

So, we´ll play a gig at Volapük in Oslo tomorrow. Hope to see you there dear friends:
