Hammock

A duo whose ambient soundscapes have drawn comparisons to artists like Boards of Canada and Sigur Rós, Hammock formed in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2004. The duo was originally conceived by Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson, who were both former members of the band Common Children. Hammock released their debut full-length, Kenotic, on their eponymous label in 2004; The Sleepover Series, Vol. 1 followed one year later. Hammock's profile was heightened in 2006 during the Winter Olympics when NBC played several of their songs during coverage of the figure-skating competition. Darla signed Hammock later that year, and the band's third album, Raising Your Voice... Trying to Stop an Echo, emerged in November.

Hammock's fourth full-length, Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow, came out in 2008. The album, which was a studio recording of music written to perform at the overseas debut art exhibition of Jónsi & Alex, found the duo striving for a more stripped-down, minimal sound. Released in 2011, the Longest Year EP reflected the trials and tribulations -- including the flooding of Byrd's home -- the band experienced in 2010. In late 2011 they released Asleep in the Downlights, an EP recorded with Steve Kilbey and Tim Powles, both alt-rock veterans and members of Australian band the Church. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi

They are such a rad group! Love how they have such a dreamy, lush feel! Such a gem! Love their 2006 album the most.
Saw Common Children at the Cru at the U of I Urbana in the late 90s. Marc has such a unique sound. l have a rare live CD of CC that I still listen to on occasion. I now enjoy my Hammock station on Pandora.

Like warm breezes of ear ether soothing my brain
I'm pretty sure their band was formed in each member's dreams.

I was going to try and express how great this band's sound is and then read 'drone_'s comment below and realized that is all that need be said.
like listening to the colors of silence in a perfect moment... so closely that you forget who you are and everything is ok again
Ah I always will love these kind of bands. Perfect for me...
How on earth did I miss this group? Just discovered via God Is An Astronaut station (another unbelievable Pandora find) Really digging them, thanks Pandora.
how are they so good??

It's a bit different to what usually comes out of Nashville. (What a relief)
I honestly listen to this every night. It's my zen music and it puts me to sleep. Love this peaceful artist!! ❤️
Hammock is a great bad im so glad i found them on Padora. Altho i wish Jakob was on pandora :(
By far my favorite station I have, I can truly escape for hours listening to their music. Hammock is one band I am so grateful for having found and the opportunity to listen to their music.

Soooooo glad I came across this band a year ago. Parker's Chapel is my fav.
Love this group,,Just brought their album The Longest year ,,,great material
Been listening to Hammock for a couple years now. They set beautiful soundscapes
I picked up Departure Songs and have to say that it was one of the most amazing experiences in sound that I ever had.This music penetrates your very soul and I am building a Drones station if anyone would care to listen or gain exposure to more music like this.
Weird picture
I like their song Losing You To You
Pandora has helped me to find amazing post-rock & ambient artists...Ha m m o c k being the best by far.
I have been a fan of Marc Byrd's style ever since the first Common Children album great music and mood always uplifts and encourages me in times of trial!
I love Hammock. They are amazing!

Countless hours spent listening to Hammock and never once have I gotten tired of this pleasurable music. Purely amazing
One of my favorites. Hammock just has that "something" that opens up that window to our hearts. So beautiful
You know it's powerful when it takes you somewhere else...absol u t e l y beautiful.
