Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Letting Up Despite Great Faults are excited to announce the release of their forthcoming EP Paper Crushon Old Flame Records out on August 2Letting Up Despite Great Faults is the electro-based sonic diary of founding member, Mike Lee. The band’s first release was the Movement EP, which included songs that were featured on NPR and the hit television drama, One Tree Hill. In 2009, they released their self-titled full length, which met with unanimous critical acclaim, including rave reviews from PitchforkRolling StoneExclaim! and countless indie music blogs.

Lee’s interest in music started at an early age, picking up piano, bass and guitar. After rooming with two DJs in college, Lee started to explore sampling and sequencing beats, taking a cue from DJ Shadow, IDM and dance pioneers like Aphex Twin and Daft Punk. Consisting of Kent Zambrana, Chris Gregory, Matt Salas, Caitlin Dwyer, and Lee himself, the live band seamlessly integrates electronic and acoustic drums on stage.Their soft mix of shoegaze and electronica calls to mind a picturesque summer night, described byTheNewMusic.net as “dreamy indie pop boys want to make and girls want to fall in love with.” Recently coming off a tour in Japan, the band will be headed states side this summer. Dates soon to be announced.
