Richard Barton So good to hear where Hammock started and their connection to Siger Ros. Favorite track: Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow.

Jeff Kliment This was my introduction to Hammock back when it was first released by Darla and it's still one of my favorites. Love the more recent big Hammock sound but this one has its own special magic.

Geordon Sauppe Words are simply insufficient to describe how flawless the deep emotional conveyance of this album is. It's such a pleasant, warm, melancholic journey, and still one of my absolute favorites from Hammock. Eighty-Four Thousand Hymns just makes my heart melt. It makes me sad in the best way possible.

This is music for a lifetime.

Favorite track: Eighty-Four Thousand Hymns

about

Ten years ago on May 5th, 2008 we released Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow. It was a different record for us. We had been invited to play at the Riceboy Sleeps art exhibit after party. It would be our first live show. Since it would just be the two of us performing we had to write material specific to the event. Of course it was intimidating because both Jonsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós and the gentle natured, multitalented Alex Somers would be sitting in the audience just a few feet away from us. Nothing to worry about though, they were absolute sweethearts. Jonsi toasted us in the middle of the set, which helped soothe our nerves, and you could sense their genuine appreciation for our performance. (On a personal note, my favorite memory was when Jonsi sang to me while we were just sitting around and talking about creating loops and soundscapes.)

Andrew and I came back home and decided to create a record out of the music we had written for the after party. There were no beats on the record, just pure ambience and a few cellos added to sweeten things up. We finished recording and Jonsi and Alex asked if Riceboy Sleeps could create the artwork after we asked them for permission to use the title, "Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow." So here we are now with a remastered version and and a gorgeous vinyl release. Why? When we brought the original recordings to the mastering session the title track had been bounced down at the wrong sample rate so it wasn't in an actual key. It was between two keys. When we performed it live we would play it in the proper key and it just sounded better to us. So we approached Taylor Deupree and asked him to do a new mix of the title track and remaster the whole record. The record now sounds like it's in 3D and the title track is now true to our original vision. So rich and warm. As for the vinyl… Well a lot of you have been asking for vinyl from us so this is kind of a test to see how it goes. But the main reason is the artwork. Vinyl sized artwork by Riceboy Sleeps. It's gorgeous and it's just nice to be able to hold it in your hands. Not to mention the warm sound of vinyl. This is a unique recording within the Hammock catalog. Unique in the way it was created, in its sonic texture and artwork. -MB
