I like this band. Haven't checked out their recent material though, I don't even know when their last album was, or if it was good.

It's going to be their most orchestrated album yet, so I probably won't dig this as much. I am, however, excited for the remastered MTWSFUT and some of the other things that they are doing

This made my day yesterday when the email came in. Plus if you say Hammock are bad I will find you
and
hurt you.

Music video is amazing, but not as good as their previous David Albotelli ones.

Not sure
what i think about the Maybe They Will Sing remaster, but I bought it straight away and gave it a
listen and it sounds different, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is they've changed.

New Chasing the Shadows format makes it as long as Departure Songs, wow. It sounds great.

is it? or is it gonna be floaty ambience with simple guitar lines floating ontop of that, with the occasional simplistic, reverb-drenched lyric floating on top of that?

It does make me laugh when people go all damp eyed in the comment sections of Hammock videos I have to admit. The music does have some serious emotional power, but save it, you just sound silly.

their music is incredibly beautiful so i can understand it. but they all sound the same to
me. possibly the samiest band ive ever heard. maybe they will sing for us tomorrow is a rare gem because its so different
