Since its release May 20, 2008 on Darla Records, "Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow" by Southern Ambient/Post-Rock duo Hammock has met with widespread critical praise from media tastemakers including Pitchfork ("an immersive listen"), All Music Guide ("a still and stunning beauty"), eMusic ("an amazing set of soaring instrumentals") and radio stalwarts such as KCRW, KEXP, and the PRI-syndicated program Echoes.


Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
