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 in 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 formula, instead opting to render the sound from new perspectives.
In the 18 years since it was released, Codename: Dustsucker has become a cult favourite; its timeless, dusky appeal bolstered with the passing of time and our ever-expanding appreciation of Sutton's immersive production style. This edition has also been newly recut over two discs for optimal fidelity and immersion in their beautifully layered sound, one you should absolutely explore if you're into anything on Talk Talk's hushed/febrile axis
