Letting Up Despite Great Faults was founded by Mike Lee in Los Angeles, CA. In 2006 he wrote an EP described by NPR as “beautiful, lolling music”, but it wasn’t until a few years later where he would deliver the band’s signature noisier and lusher soundscapes on a debut LP buzzed about all around the blogosphere, drawing praise from Pitchfork, Consequence, Gold Flake Paint, KEXP and more.

Pitchfork found their first single on MySpace, while Mike found his first bandmate Kent Zambrana (bass) on Craigslist. Soon after, they upped sticks and moved to Austin, TX, where they linked up with remaining members Daniel Schmidt (drums) and Annah Fisette (guitar, vocals).

Now, after eight years, the band are back with a new full length titled ‘IV'—filled with dreamier soundscapes, and covering topics of growth, loss, and regret.

With the album mastered by Simon Scott of Slowdive, it’s hard not to label it shoegaze, but from deep storytelling to catchy indie-pop melodies, they hope to show fans, both old and new, just how much they've grown in their little corner of the world.

More details TBA over the coming months.
