Clarity, Turn Away And Return

Album Review
DJ Aporia
Reviewed 2016-06-15
Ambient shoegaze legends are back with more of the same, and it’s all bliss-out fantastic. Some tracks veer more towards standard post-rock, others shoegaze, and others ambient. “Narcoleptic dreamy ambience” (Your Imaginary Friend) and “bladerunnerdreamshoes” (Mister Esquire) sum up Hammock well.

RIYL Slow Dancing Society, Eluvium, Stars of the Lid, Bowery Electric, grandiose somewhat cheesy post-rock
Favorites: 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 14, 16

1. (5:13) Turn Away and Return—Crescendoing pensive ambience, strings and light keyboards.
2. (6:23) *** Clarity—Glowing uplifting post-rock epic.
3. (5:18) Glassy Blue—Strummed guitar, lush strings, thick ambient textures, emo vocals.
4. (3:17) **** Dissonance—Enveloping, skyward shoegaze. “We keep dreaming in the wake of the shadows.”
5. (5:04) Marathon Boy—Somber, feels like Grouper.
6. (6:39) * We Could Have Been Beautiful Again—Melancholic post-rock with some build-ups and releases. What sounds like a recorded phone call at one point. Brings to mind Explosions in the Sky.
7. (3:58) Everything and Nothing—Sludgier post-rock with confessional vocals.
8. (4:50) ** She was in the Field Counting Stars—Calm, hopeful, sometimes breaks the calm and enters a chugging post-rock rhythm.
9. (3:34) Burning Down the Fascination—Heavy percussion, purposeful.
10. (4:29) Wasted We Stared at the Ceiling—Grand, maudlin strings and clapping beat.
11. (5:00) ** Reverence—Contemplative guitar, some bass fills, twilight sense of loss. Sounds like Benoît Pioulard.
12. (3:18) I Will Become the Ground You Walk On—Cantu-Ledesma type ambient track with strings.
13. (5:35) We Were So Young—Most distinguishable vocals. Outsized, heart-on-sleeve rock.
14. (6:07) * You Walk Around… Shining Like the Sun—Gleaming, fresh, wide-eyed.
15. (4:32) Unspoken—Female and male vocals at the forefront, electric guitar, gets more and more yearning and hopeful.
16. (3:16) * Before You Float Away into Nothing—Liturgical organ, last forty seconds ambient with a muffled field recording.
