Under the palm trees of L.A., Letting Up Despite Great Faults are set in their own ways. Since 2006, Michael Lee and his partners in crime layer swooping synths with shoegaze melodies, leading magazines like Rolling Stone and Pitchfork to dub them one of the best new dream-pop acts. Having paid their tribute to Blonde Redhead, they released debut “Movement” four years ago and second lovely album "Letting Up Despite Great Faults" last year. Swedish fellow-travellers Radio Dept. should be proud of them. And so are we.
