Post rock outfit Hammock have started pre-ordering their upcoming record, Oblivion Hymns, due out on November 26. 'I Could Hear The Water At The Edge Of All Things' is available as a free download with each bundle.
The transition into the choral part wasn't very smooth. I felt like it kind of clashed with the rest of the track. There's potential if the track arrangement is complimentary and it works with the next track though.
I hope that Hammock haven't bitten off more than they can chew with Oblivion Hymns. To write, orchestrate, record, and release an album only thirteen months after a pretty successful double LP is ambitious. Considering the scope of the project and how many musicians are involved, it's amazing that they've managed to pull it off. Hopefully the album is consistent in quality with the rest of their discography.
"The transition into the choral part wasn't very smooth" idk geas, the rest of the music had already faded. Granted, it was a fast fade transition. I agree though that what that track leads into will have a lot to do with how out of place it is.
