Hammock

Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow

Darla

Released: 4th June 2012 | 11 track dream pop album

After four well-loved and critically lauded recordings, Hammock returns with a new full-length, special release, Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow, which features eleven new songs and original artwork by Riceboy Sleeps (Jonsi Birgisson of the Grammy-nominated Sigur Ros and Alex Somers of Parachutes). At the invitation of Birgisson and Somers, Hammock gave their first-ever live performance at the after party celebration of the Riceboy Sleeps overseas debut art exhibition, held in Hot Springs, AR in August 2007. Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow is the studio recording of the original music written and played by Hammock for the occasion. Studio performance is a more accurate phrase, as the guitars for these songs were recorded live, just as the band performed them, later rounded out by Matt Slocum's expansive, emotive cello. This is Hammock reduced to an essence—a core. There are no intrusions. No beats. No lyrics. Nothing to break the spell or jar the listener out of the moment. Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow has all of the vulnerability and spontaneity of a performance, yet all of the rich, cinematic beauty of a Hammock studio recording. Hammock's self-imposed minimalism is expertly merged with their hallmark melodic songwriting, resulting in the most focused, mesmeric and deeply personal album in their catalog to date.
