Dallas Green – whose recording alias is a result of his own name: Gentlemen Dandies – spent 2011 recording his third studio album Little Hell while still performing with his post-hardcore act Alexisonfire. He had left the group “secretly” though not “publicly”, i.e., his bandmates were unaware of his plans to kick things down quite a few notches and turn indie-folk full-time. So this year’s The Hurry and the Harm is the first effort to be recorded and released while the Canadian singer-songwriter finds himself with fewer constrictions and fewer limitations.
