Album Review

Clocking in at a mere 25 minutes, Stranded Under Endless Sky is a great introduction to the duo of Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson and a perfect teaser of the next album for fans. Consisting of just four tracks (three of which are five minutes or more), Hammock pack enough emotion and provocative instrumental storytelling to fully engage and satisfy even the most jaded listener. All that is required is patience, as these beautiful, shimmering homages to the Cocteau Twins and Bola unfold at their own pace, in their own time, revealing secrets upon repeated listening.

Much like their previous work, Stranded Under Endless Sky is an excellent mini album from Hammock, who continue their ascent to godhead status among the drone-rock underground.
