EP Review: "Unstructured Dissemination" by Onset

Unstructured Dissemination
The hardest kind of music to write about is atmospheric doo..well anything. Atmospheric Anything.

Singapore's Onset makes nothing easier for me. If anything, they make it much harder. Atmospheric Doom Metal, like this, is a personal favorite.

So, when writing it up, it's all about finding the thread. The first track, or side one, sounds like someone (perhaps myself) standing up in front of the class to give a speech on a topic they know well, but without any notes. (Perhaps like the speech I gave on Phoebus Apollo in 8th Grade.)

The difference, Onset does much better than I did. 

Track's the protest. Someone (like me maybe) is now protesting that there was nothing extemporaneous about the speech, it was certainly put together ahead of time, but as it was committed to memory, perhaps it didn't flow as well as it could have.

Just listen to me...that's all they're asking.

Onset's Unstructured Dissemination isn't the longest album you'll read about today, but it's just the right length. It's wide open and the expanses are filled by your imagination. Check it out.
