Hot on the heels of a critically-acclaimed new archival release, we sit down with His Name Is Alive mastermind Warren Defever to talk about how it came to be, his early years of music making, and what he’s got up his sleeve.
Scottish trio Cocteau Twins shocked their fan base in 1993 by leaving their longtime label home at 4AD for major label Fontana. This era has always been considered problematic, as it found the mysterious group suddenly sounding not so mysterious. This four disc box set compiles all of their releases for the label, and offers up an important rethink about the band’s final chapter.
A gorgeous one-off between The Cocteau Twins and Harold Budd, this obscure little nugget is one of the best records in both parties’ vast, impressive discographies.
