(LP, Album, Mono, Ltd). 4AD, 4AD. CAD 6010, 6010. Like a summer acid trip, this highly experimental album lysergicaly shifts through genres - indie pop, dub, joe meek bleeps, phil spector style 60's pop, extreme noise, & more - yet maintains cohesion through theme & concept. One of the best albums from the 4AD/Creation era - it's hard to not adore Wall of Speed & it's wonderful psychedelic tape tricks that will make the summer of '96 reverberate forever.

Biography by Heather Phares. Eclectic Michigan act that spans dream pop, R&B, '60s pop, metal, and more according to the vision of frontman Warren Defever. full condensed blue highlight denotes album pick.

His Name Is Alive inhabits the zone where arty European postpunk and homegrown pop studio wizardly overlap, according to critic Ivan Kreilkamp in the Village Voice. The group seems significantly different on each album it has released, from Livonia in 1990 to Last Night in 2002. Since 1989 the His Name is Alive (HNIA) lineup has changed as frequently as its ever-evolving sound. Warren Defever is at the core of the group, which is based in his childhood home in Livonia, Michigan, a Detroit suburb
