My favorite new album for at least forever will be Otis G Johnson’s Everything – God Is Love ’78. That record is so flippin’ haunting you won’t believe it.

For outsider gospel visionary and Detroit native Otis G. Johnson, the Holy Ghost was in the machine…in this case a rhythm-equipped Hammond organ. Everything – God Is Love 78, a singular 1978 mid-fi document, features android percussion against chords of Otis’s own invention, possessed by minor tonality and frequent bum notes. Lifting it further are extemporaneous vocal homilies to the rapture, love, and everything. 

You always wonder where Dean Blunt got his inspiration to his new album Redeemer? Just listen to only one song from Otis G Johnson and you got your answer rigth away and don’t get me started with both album covers.
