It took them a while but Meniscus from Sydney Australia is back with a new album. This band is described by the press as “forward-thinking” (The Drum Media), and “epic, symphonic and melodic” (Triple J), Meniscus seamlessly blend together elements of Guitar-driven ambient soundscapes, hard-rock, electronic and psychedelic music.
"I've always admired the narrative approach of post-rock, and on this album Meniscus certainly mastered that skill. A track like 'Overhang', has the power to remain stuck in your head for a long time, not only because of the recognizable guitar play, but also because it's quite easy to imagine a story while listening to it. 'Head Rush' certainly has that quality, being a massive track, a possible soundtrack for a beautiful adventure. You can really lose yourself in the immersive nature of decent post-rock, and in that aspect, 'Refractions' is a marvelous piece of work." — Merchants of Air
"They have crafted a true gem of a record, an oasis from the daily tribulations of life..." Arctic Drones (8/10)
