Just listening to "Cold House" by Hood put me in mind of this near-forgotten pioneer soundtrack. "The Winter Hit Hard" from said CD is pure Bark Psychosis - circa this album "Hex". Ghostly instrumentation, an undercurrent of menace through cold, lonely vistas. A post-rock bliss-out. They do ambient wonderfully on "Pendulum Man"; the seminal Talk Talk is recalled on "Absent Friend". But mostly, this is music taking another step into pastures new and uncharted, still sounding as relevant and vital (well to me anyway) as it did 9 years ago.
If you bought Cold House or Amnesiac last year, check this out, you may find some strands of similarity, and see how ahead of their time Bark Psychosis actually were.
