Cullen Omori’s The Diet is now available worldwide on Sub Pop. The new album, led by the singles ”Four Years,” ”A Real You“ and ”Happiness Reigns,” is
buoyed by warped, analog pedals/transistors, tailor-made guitar tones
that crisscross ‘70s art rock vocals and classic songwriting all within
the span of 40 minutes. You can now stream The Diet in its entirety via Spotify and Apple Music.
The Line of Best Fit had this to say of the album, “It’s all so hopeful and luminous, a reflection of the headspace the singer’s now in, worlds apart from a couple years ago. Omori’s rediscovered life’s good side, and found more of himself in the process; ultimately, that’s led to him being able to pour a whole lot more of his heart and soul into his songs, and it’s a beautiful thing (8/10).”
Pitchfork offered this, “The former Smith Westerns member’s second album represents a return to his core strengths: crystalline, cosmically ornate melodies and wryly clear-eyed lyrics.” And PopMatters raves, “The resulting sound is inventive, fun, fresh, and perhaps Omori’s best release to-date (8/10).”
The Diet is available now through Sub Pop. LP purchases through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers will receive the limited Loser edition on lavender swirl vinyl (while supplies last). A new t-shirt design is also available.
