The debut release from Hammer Hawk, “Friendship Beverage,” is a tour-de-force of hard nostalgia, driven by the demons that keep you up at night. The album feels like peeling out of the parking lot at work on your motorcycle, letting the wind stir up long buried emotions as you drive to nowhere in particular. Hammer Hawk crafts a powerful soundtrack for navigating the riptide of memory, complete with roaring guitar, lyrics that sweep across the intersection of savvy heartache and cutting wit, and bass grooves so fresh, they probably came from the farmer’s market.
