Hammock is the duo of guitarists Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson. Nine years since their formation in Nashville, TN, the band has emerged as a leading light in modern music, with a unique sound that effortlessly melds elements of ambient, electronic, neoclassical, and post-rock. "Listening to my new favorite band, Hammock. Mesmerizing and inspirational...like wine and slippers to me now. And trust me when I say that's the biggest compliment possible." - Ricky Gervais
"Your albums are wonderful. You know the secret..." - Jónsi, Sigur Rós"7.6…speaks to all those things in our lives that aren't tangible, yet feel nearly within our grasp..." - Pitchfork "...crystalline guitar tones and gently pulsating synths convey a sense of broadness and space..." - The Wire"...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 as 'Mono No Aware' and 'City In The Dust On My Window'. Highly recommended." - 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
