Been a fan of the Tennessee-based ambient duo Hammock for several years now, and their newest release, Mysterium, is easily their finest, most sublime work to date. That’s saying a lot, considering that they trade in some of the most beautiful music you’re ever going to hear. Mysterium is a tribute to a friend and loved one who recently passed away, a young man who looked up to Hammock mastermind Marc Byrd. Somber and beautiful without ever being morose, this is an album of stunning, quiet, subtle beauty.
Mysterium is available now from Hammock Music.
