Jonathan Demers This album..... It opens a door from heaven... it makes me connect with something realy supernatural. Like God wispering to you... I deeply love you.... Thank you Hammock for this amazing album. You are bless.

Merci du fond du coeur pour cette album. Seul dans ma chambre, j’écoute cet album, je tombe rapidement en contemplation et en louange, en prière... je vis vraiment une expérience spirituelle avec cet album. Je vous en remercie beaucoup. Je rends grâce à Dieu de vous avoir créér!

potkettle Stunning and cohesive body of work. I particularly like how melodic this is. Sweeping and cinematic, sometimes you can almost see the film that it could be the soundtrack to. Heartfeltly recommended Favorite track: We Watched You Disappear.

about

Nashville’s Hammock follows up 2017’s critically-acclaimed Mysterium with Universalis, the second installment of a planned three-album series. While Mysterium took listeners down a horizontal path that explored themes of death and grief, Universalis begins a vertical, upward movement back toward the light.
 
At times, Universalis calls back to Hammock’s 2006 album Raising Your Voice… Trying to Stop an Echo, while also retaining Mysterium’s deep ambient, neoclassical style. The band also finds itself rediscovering some of its earliest influences, including Low and Red House Painters. With Universalis, Hammock invites listeners to lose themselves within its layers of sound, while also embracing the beauty in its raw openness and silence.
 
To achieve the sound of Universalis, Hammock brought on Francesco Donadello (A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Olafur Arnalds, Johann Johannsson) and Peter Katis (Interpol, Jonsi, The National), who each mixed portions of the album. The album artwork was curated by The Fuel and Lumber Company with drawings by Pete Schulte, and Matt Kidd (Slow Meadow) returned to play piano and provide additional engineering.
