The leader of the new indie rock American new generation travels alone, from the US to Antigel. It seems easy for him to deliver great tunes at every release, as if he could write one perfect album per month. But Kevin Morby holds back, even though he released 5 long-forms since 2013. It’s a lot, but most importantly it’s systematically marvellous of evidence and inspiration. We wouldn’t set aside one single song. We can feel the land in his music, just enough to know that he’s coming from Missouri. We can also feel the Los Angeles vibes, and the production is so unique that it resonates roots and contemporary at the same time. And the voice… making us dream of wide open spaces… We were blown away by the sublime lament of 9 minutes long (Harlem River, 2013) – since then, it’s still perfect, for instance his latest spectacular release this year (Oh My God).
