Fashions pass, God stays. Whatever we think of the man, he's still there, even where we don't expect it. Just like on Kevin Morby's fifth solo recording. The concept-album of this great American indie rock guru is neither a soundtrack for devout church-goers, nor an exalted symphony blind to the glory of the great bearded man sitting up there on his cloud... Former bass player of the band Woods and singer of The Babies, Morby takes the word of God by the collar and takes it a little bit everywhere. It is both the God of gospel as well as the God of oh my god. The album has a lot of gospel to offer. It quickly becomes chamber rock that slips into poisonous Lou Reed style rock (Velvet era), preacher-ish like Bob Dylan or disillusioned like Leonard Cohen, three of the iconic craftsmen. The instrumentation follows the forms of the minute and the songwriter unveils the flute, the saxophone and Wurlitzer if necessary. The fourteen songs of Oh My God are especially tight because of their lavish form and the sequences always being well thought-out. As always with Kevin Morby, the classicism of his music does not match the speed of time. For this, you just have to take it in, to follow him in his inner wanderings. Believer, agnostic or atheist, just close your eyes and let yourself be rocked by the unique style of this unique modern rock band. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
