I was about to describe Onyx System as "under-appreciated," "unsung" and "unheralded." But were they, in actual fact? "Dreams Are Not Dreams" was one of the first records I discovered after first visiting the Free Music Archive, and it remains my favorite release of 2013 and a staple of my pre-dawn commute on public transit (as all the other riders nod between sleep and wakefulness).

The first two tracks, "Night Vision Device" and "Future Fetish" instantly bring Chrome's classic "Red Exposure" LP to mind - treated vocals, insistent guitars, a wash of echo and science-fictional preoccupations. Onyx System circle the earth on an elliptical path, only occasionally making fleeting contact with we Terrans. You might pick up the signal if the conditions are aligned properly.

A brief, to-the-point summary would invoke terms like "art garage," "space punk" or "nouvelle vague," or "propulsive post-punk for paranoid androids." Admirers of Chrome, Red Transistor, etc., etc. will appreciate it, as will all others with their aural aerials in full working order.
