"Your albums are wonderful. You know the secret..." - Jónsi, Sigur Rós"...crystalline guitar tones and gently pulsating synths convey a sense of broadness and space..." - The Wire"...boundless, aquatic instrumental frescoes...an impeccable, womblike soundtrack." - Oxford American"...operates outside of genre, far beyond the now obvious limitations of the dream pop/shoegaze scene Hammock cut their teeth in." - All Music Guide"You can certainly see why the Sigur Rós front man is so taken with Hammock: you'd be hard-pressed to find any music under the loose banner of post-rock as unreservedly beautiful and stately..." - Boomkat
"...expansive and dramatic ambient post-rock…the kind that would fit perfectly as a soundtrack to a film." - Noisey / VICE
"Oblivion Hymns rewrites [Hammock's] script, bringing strings to the fore in a manner that would make composer Max Richter or Hammock’s peers in A Winged Victory For The Sullen proud." - MAGNET
"...washes of ambient noise and warm texture..." - LA Times
