Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Letting Up Despite Great Faults is the electro-based sonic diary of founding member, Mike Lee. They first entered the music scene with the release of the Movement EP, which included songs that were featured on NPR and the hit television drama, One Tree Hill.
Since then, they’ve refined and expanded their sound, bridging the gap between lo-fi, shoegaze and indie rock on their self-titled full length release in 2009. The album was met with unanimous critical acclaim, garnering rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Exclaim!, and countless music blogs. With their latest offering, Paper Crush EP, Letting Up Despite Great Faults continue to reinvent a sound, with music blog Aquarium Drunkard declaring “if there was ever a band to spearhead the recent renaissance of dream-pop fever then this is the act to get invested in.”
