"Like New Year's Day" was one of the very first albums released in 2011, as it was released on January the 1st. It combines the efforts of songwriter Matthew Ryan, who brings the exceptional vocals that very much compliments Hammocks sound. Hammock brings their well familiar music which is a mixture of ambient and post-rock.
As it shows the tracklist shows three songs with the same name, and to be honest there is hardly a difference between any of them. Track number 3 cuts out the instrumental part which is in the first two songs. Track number 1 and 2 is pretty much identical though I can hardly hear the difference. Regardless of this it is beautiful song.
2011 could be shaping up to be a good year, and this is the album that started it for me.
