Cullen Omori supports The Pillows on their FLCL “Mono Me You Sun Tour,”presented by Adult Swim through July 19th.
Cullen Omori has shared the kaleidoscopic closer, “A Real You,”from his sophomore effort, The Diet, available worldwide from Sub Pop Records on August 17th. Omori shares that “a lot of the parts were scattered around in different songs during the New Misery sessions. The song has been incubated since 2014, and I’d always mess around with a version of the song at sound checks and during interludes in the live set. The song coalesced last year and it came together in a way where it’s familiar but also weird and new and I think that’s a philosophy I applied to the whole album. You can listen to “A Real You” here.
The Diet is a powerful modern indie-rock album that is buoyed by warped, analog pedals/transistors and tailor-made guitar tones. Omori’s winsome vocals crisscross ‘70s art rock and classic songwriting all within the span of 40 minutes.
