EDITORS’ NOTES

On New Misery, Cullen Omori creates dazzling, glam-infused indie rock with sparkling, expansive instrumentation. Inspired by the Top 40 pop played at his medical-supply company day job, Omori drenches these songs in blurry reverb, as heard in the title track’s swaying ’60s haze or in the echoing drums, spacey harmonies, and dreamy melancholia of “No Big Deal.” The slow-burning “And Yet the World Still Turns” distills everything that makes this album great: blissful, enveloping ambience fused with pure pop wizardry.

Excellent Album

It's always risky going solo but Omori clearly proves he has the chops. Great album start to finish.

Very good, proper solo album from top to bottom

The name's Beach House and Tame Impala are getting thrown around in a lot of conversations about this album. And those people would not be wrong to make those connections. These songs showcase Cullen Omori filling his songs with a lot of textures similar to those used by the afore-mentioned artists (lots of reverb, synthesizers, guitars that weave in and out of the hooks of songs, etc.) For me, what's great about this album is the insight into the songwriter's soul. This is a very personal album, one that requires multiple close listenings with headphones. Once you start peeling all the emotional layers, you are rewarded with a very unique listening experience. This is Cullen Omori very confidently finding and establishing his musical identity, post Smith Westerns.

Sounds like Beach House ☺️

Nice beach house-esque sound. Nothing revolutionary, but really nice stuff
