MENISCUS RE-RELEASE ABSENCE OF I “EP”
Is there any end to the number of awesome post-rocky/proggy/alternative things the Land Down Under has to offer?
I dooouuuuubbbbbt it.
Sydney’s Meniscus ruled very hard with 2007’s 45-minute “hardly-qualifies-as-an-EP” debut release The Absence of I. If you are unacquainted, imagine a mostly-instrumental Isis with some distinctly Icelandic overtones or Misery Signals if they only wrote songs like “Worlds & Dreams.” The songs are simpler, but much catchier and easier on the ears than those of your average delay-abusers.
The stratospheric trio now apparently aim to make the “extended play” tag all the more laughable with the album’s re-release on May 18th, which sees them tacking on a nice little eleven-minute bonus track to the original full-length duration. You can stream that track, which majorly rocks, on the group’s Bandcamp or below, and you can download it losslessly with your pre-order.
