Product Notes

Mini-album (4 tracks/31 minutes). A year after resurfacing into memory with Detrola (Silver Mountain, '06) and with eyes set firmly on the next step, XMMER, which should be seeing the light soon, His Name Is Alive present four new songs exclusively through Acuarela, recorded in their living room in Livonia, Michigan. Firefly Dragonfly is a laid-back, acoustic mannered pitstop for the quixotic North American band. Firefly Dragonfly contains a warm atmosphere, an undiscovered guise of His Name Is Alive, an intimate side. This mini-album opens softly with a cover of Sufjan Stevens' "The Dress Looks Nice on You" (baptized here as "I Can See a Lot of Light in You"). It's an imagined vision of the Stevens original, imbued here by Andy FM's subtle accent, with much sparser & simpler arrangements, with no banjo. "Come Out the Wilderness" begins with what sounds like an acoustic variation of Neu!, lain over harp frills, to then evolve into reflection of a traditional folk song. "There's Something Between US And He's changing My Words" appeared on Home Is in Your Head (4AD, 1991), His Name Is Alive's second record, and what was a studio experiment smoothly becomes a campfire song with Jessica Bailiff's vocals and under the cloak of a harmonium.
