Nashville, a place so often associated with country music, is also proving to be a source of excellent guitar-based ambient music. Hammock, made up of Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson, are another exponent of dreamily evocative instrumental music; though they are wordless they speak of doomed holiday romances not a million miles away from The Workhouse whose own 'Trading Estate' seems to be a very comfortable bedfellow for 'Kenotic's towering title track. The likes of 'Through A Glass Darkly' teeter on the edge of ecstacy whilst 'The Silence', 'Winter Light' and 'Miles To Go Before Sleep' are like a marriage between Robin Guthrie and early Slowdive. Alternatively, a mood change is apparent on the darker and considerably more urgent-sounding 'Wish'. It's true that there are a few acts making similar music to Hammock at this time but this Tennessee duo carry it off better than most.
