Limited Edition of 200 copies on regular BLACK Vinyl

Genre: electro, synthwave, industrial, synth pop, dark Italo

Four years and one pandemic after his latest “Dreams of a dark Building” EP, the herald of dungeon synth pop is finally back from his shallow grave. Life has not been gentle with Seattle-based solo producer Parker Lautenschlager over the past few years, imposing its unpredictability and forcing him to channel all the feelings that come with it into Profit Prison’s music.

It’s no surprise that his first full-length album “Gilt” marks one futher step towards the dark corners of italo / hi-nrg body music. Typical Profit Prison’s vocals and melodies, reminiscent of OG synth masters Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, are still here, buried in the mix and waiting to haunt the listeners and drag them down in one sulfurous dancing spiral.

Lead single “Sophia” juxtaposes some weirdly camouflaged vocals with one heavenly chorus that seems willing to revive your fortunes while instead it literally sings "But I lost it all". “A Matter of Tact” displays pop escapism over some throbbing minimal synth tension, “Seven Words” sounds like a throwback to 70's italo filtered through the eyes of a 21st century punk rocker. “Katalina” has a rampant synth à la Carpenter climbing over a story of loss… “An Ascetic” is a solo ramble reaching for the inner light on a carpet of cold keys.

What's more, tracks got longer in Parker’s recent songwriting, with most of the songs being now five minute long and reaching peaks of seven minutes with the closing, almost progressive disco jam of “A.R.P. (Amphetamine Research Project)”, nothing short of a lucid dream on the floor of Studio 54.

Last but not least, the artwork by French artist Robin Roche delivers medieval-yet-punk graphic vibes to match just perfectly the sounds on this record.
