Descrizione

Waiting for a last minute cosmic pardon from the governor of circumstance

"On a cold night we lay down, under starlight we breakdown, spend our whole life seeking shelter, til the last time, gone forever..."

"I'm on fire with the things I could've said, but you never asked so they just stayed inside my head
And you tell me now, that the same words pursed you lips?"

If you live all your life you'll live a long time

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. "…music in the spirit of Japanese art—simple by form, but it's full of complexity in its tone and its timbres." --Bob Boilen, NPR, All Songs Considered

Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job.The dollar buys a nickel's worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere that seems to know what to do and there's no end to it! We know the air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad. Worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don't go out anymore. We sit in a house as slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster, and my TV, and my steel belted radials and I won't say anything." Well I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad!

I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crimes in the streets. All I know is first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a human being, God Dammit! My life has value!" So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

"...this work manages to dissolve its temporal markers and speak about moments removed from time. It talks to the delicious flaws of memory and feeling whilst never sullying itself with literalness or simple documentation". ~ About slow dancing society
