Autumn Moods - Bark Psychosis

When Hex came out, almost 25 years ago, it was reviewed by journalist Simon Reynolds who coined the term "post-rock" to describe Bark Pyschosis's sound. Relying more on tone and texture, muted but complex percussive layers, and a mood over melody and hooks, the band created this watershed album that groups have used as a touchstone ever since. Recently reissued on vinyl in a beautiful 2LP 45rpm pressing (currently sold out online but we have one copy at the store), this is an essential bit of music history.
