I was unloading some handpicked artists onto a friend’s machine earlier today and realize that i had been neglecting an old friend. Hammock is a two-member (Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson) post-rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. I initially received these files from my good friend Whisper a few years back, who she apparently received from our friend Jesse, so i want to thank you both for the peace you granted me through this music. Me and Whisper used to lay in bed or sit in the bath listening to this album on repeat, sometimes every night for weeks straight. If you need to unwind, hang out with whisper, or if you cant do that, listen to Hammock. Hammock combines live instrumentation, electronic beats, and droning guitar into atmospheric dreamscapes as i call them. Similar in style to the work of Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, Steve Roach, Harlod Budd, Sigür Ros, and Stars of the Lid. I hope you enjoy this as much as i swoon over it. Whisper if you’re reading this, i love you and i still wear the tie you bought me.
Pretty soon i’ll upload a sleepy time torrent consisting of all my favorite dreamscape tracks. will be called:”Arms of Morpheus, Land of Nod”, keep a look out on piratebay or demonoid, will also be posted here.
