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

One of a kind the dignity of your souls presence is infused and bathed in the luminous sound very healing

So powerful!! So uplifting!! Even when the mood of the music can feel, or seem melancholy, it's still hopeful!! Like there's this unspoken, reassuring feeling, that everything will somehow be ok. Even in the most excruciating of pain, or loss, or heart-wrench i n g grief. There's something more, something greater than all of us. Someone greater than all of us, yet still wants to know us, and love us. He already knows and loves us now. It's so beautiful!!

I get so lost in their music... I go back to old familiar places I know in my mind, even new places I haven't imagined before. They really know how to capture your heart, soul, and mind, maybe even body too. It's almost as if their music has a physical spirit, a physical heartbeat. I mean, I really feel like I'm not only alive, but that I'm out of my own body, and soul, when I hear these other-worldl y soundscapes that they create so naturally it seems.

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.

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.

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.
