His Name is Alive

You may or may not have heard of His Name is Alive. I'll keep it short, as there will be a lengthy article of mine on the band that should surface on Drowned in Sound some time this week. Once darlings of the 4AD label, His Name is Alive (aka Warren Defever) composed some of the finest off-kilter indie songs of the 90's. They sound distinct to the 4AD label, probably because of the input Ivo-Watts Russell had in the early days.
Here, taken from the His Name is Alive MySpace, are a couple of music videos. The first of which is directed by the near-legendary stop-motion animators The Brothers Quay:

His Name is Alive: Can't Go Wrong Without You
