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.
