Hammock remastered: “City in the Dust on My Window”

On it’s fifth anniversary last month, Hammock presented a remastered version of their 2008 album “Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow” including a new mix of the title track.  The story behind the remaster as they tell it on their Bandcamp site is interesting: “When we brought the original recordings to the mastering session the title track had been bounced down at the wrong sample rate so it wasn’t in an actual key. It was between two keys. When we performed it live we would play it in the proper key and it just sounded better to us. So we approached Taylor Deupree and asked him to do a new mix of the title track and remaster the whole record. The record now sounds like it’s in 3D and the title track is now true to our original vision. So rich and warm.”   This track, “City in the Dust on My Window” is one of my favorites and it does indeed sound even nicer with the new treatment.  You can find the complete story and all the album purchase options, including vinyl, here:
