His Name Is Alive – Go To Hell Mountain

Hello, Blue Roses seem to have softened me up with the result that I’ve lapsed into a semi-conscious stroll through a hill of wispy aural fluff. That is not to denigrate the sweet vocal murmurings of Andy FM on ‘Go To Hell Mountain’, it’s just that I’m trying to prepare myself for a night of alcohol and mayhem and this is not really healthy preparation. On the bright side Warren Defever does his best to include a speckling of his experimental side and when he does the song temporarily loses its tight grip on vibrant loveliness. His Name Is Alive have been around since the late ’80’s making intelligent music for 4AD for the best part of a decade before eventually moving to Defever’s own Silver Mountain label. Absorbing the band’s enormous catalogue would require a week of Sunday’s but songs like ‘Go To Hell Mountain’ should be persuasion enough to make sure your weekends are full for the next while. KD
