Noah Anthony's long-running project Profligate returns with the self-released Abbreviated Regime. The new album cultivates richly euphonious songs that are both deeply transformative and spiritually moving. Billowing aural entanglements blossom into slowly burning ballads full of haunting harmonies; hovering synthesizers coalesce to form an ecstatically immersive sonic mass. On album highlight "Enlist," sharply fragmenting arpeggios ripple beneath the pulse of a transfixing vocal loop. Throughout, Anthony's tender crooning is woven amongst the trickles of noise radiating between floating tones; the words are subtle and pensive, while evoking a turmoil that is slowly absorbed by a restless void.
