Faced with a grueling schedule after his 2008 breakthrough, Hercules & Love Affair, dance-floor auteur Andy Butler relapsed into substance abuse only to conquer it a second time—a redemption documented on the stylish, triumphant Omnion. Matching such sober material with Butler’s hedonistic sound isn’t exactly intuitive, but the album pulls it off with flair, from the bald introspection of “Fools Wear Crowns,” to the vogue, Pet Shop Boys thump of “Rejoice” and “Wildchild,” to the ethereal title track, where Sharon Van Etten’s disembodied vocals seem to bask in the light of a higher power.
