022/100: "Oblivion Hymns" by Hammock
There is something unmistakable about the majestic sound of Hammock. Their particular style of ambient post-rock is a true delight and "Oblivion Hymns", their most recent release, is truly delightful.
What sets this album apart from its peer group are the vocal elements … the angelic choir on two tracks, such as “Then The Quiet Explosion” … or the last track - “Tres Dominí” - with its haunting vocal, a vocal that sends shivers down my spine each & every time I hear it.
This is an album of exquisite pastoral soundscapes, the kind of beauty that leaves an indelible mark on your soul.
Why only 100 words?
