Title: Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow

Has anyone heard the latest release by Hammock called Maybe They
Will Sing for Us Tomorrow
?  I gather it's more ambient than earlier CDs.

Yes, that is a beautiful album, and anything after their first album Kenotic is fairly sublime (even that is still a good album, just not up there with their newer stuff).  I always think of Hammock as sounding a little like Stars of the Lid, but at the beach.

They are definitely in my 'jealous' group.  Artists that make me seeth with envy. ;)

  I love this album. It's the first I've heard of Hammock, so I can't comment on how it compares to their other releases. To me, there's definitely a Stars Of The Lid influence here, which I like. Very highly recommended.

"... sounding a little like Stars of the Lid, but at the beach."

Yep, that about sums it up :)

I have a couple of earlier things and just got the new one. All very enjoyable.

Thanks for the comparisons and recommendation chaps.

Kenotic was quite intense.  In the right mood, it's splendid, but at other times the reverb
and layered guitars is overwhelming.   Eluvium comes more to mind.  It seems as if
they're becoming more chilled.

The CD came over the weekend, and I wasn't disappointed.

Thanks again for the recommendation.
