Boomkat Product Review:
Codename: Dustsucker, the 2nd and final Bark Psychosis album, is a gently kaleidoscopic follow-up to their seminal début, Hex. Originally dispatched 10 years after their first album, Codename: Dustsucker  factors in a more sprawling set of experimental coordinates alongside their dream pop and harmonious shoegaze roots, also exploring deftly woven strands of lilting folk, post-club acid, breezy jazz and a stylistic reverance to Talk Talk crossed with more distinctly British sensibilities.
It would be difficult for any band to follow up a début album of Hex’s magnitude, so Bark Psychosis, the group revolving sometime D&B producer Graham Sutton and experimental noise-rocker Colin Bradley (Splintered) understandably took another 10 years and a plethora of creative decisions to come up with a record which didn’t repeat the formulat, but instead rendered their early sound from new perspectives.
In the 14 years since it was released, Codename: Dustsucker has become a cult favourite, a fact based on its timelessly dusky appeal, and one reflected in the steep price for 2nd hand copies. This new edition, recut over two discs for optimal fidelity and immersion in their beautifully layered sound, is set to grip a whole new wave of sensitive souls searching for a near-perfect late night listen. Especially fans of The Remote Viewer/Hood, and Mark Hollis/Talk Talk.
