His Name Is Alive

His Name Is Alive

Profile:
American experimental rock band from Livonia, Michigan.

The group's early albums, starting with 1990's Livonia saw them working more or less in an ethereal dream-rock vein that drew comparisons to bands like My Bloody Valentine, even as they ventured out to try their hands at damaged experimental folk and Negativland-style tape collage art. Later efforts found the group playing with everything from dub to '60s pop to garage rock to psychedelic classic rock. Increasingly though, ringleader Warn Defever's fixation with gospel and R&B took His Name Is Alive in an utterly unprecedented direction: towards making experimentally minded smooth urban balladry.

The band of the highest recommendation to any serious alternative music fan. Music that is certainly hard to describe as it is constantly changing course from album to album - once it is avant-garde noise, switching to moody guitar works with every next suddenly twisting into weird electronic treatments... Although recent efforts dared reaching impressive heights of smooth r'n'b, each record is a masterpiece of its own right, it is just too hard to write down sole impressions on each. Make 'His Name' ALIVE indeed!
