New Sounds Now :: Letting Up Despite Great Faults
Los Angeles' dream pop quintet, Letting Up Despite Great Faults will issue the Paper Crush EP on August 2nd through Old Flame Records, in a limited CD pressing of 500 copies. Ever since stumbling onto the bands Movement EP in 2006 and hunting down the subsequent self titled debut in 2009, we've been more than a little smitten. Often compared to The Radio Dept. and New Order, we also hear a bit of Chapterhouse in fronter, Micheal Lee's new compositions, which for us, is never a bad thing. But the most intriguing aspect of LUDGF is their ability to transcend influences and deliver something that is both unique and arresting. The Paper Crush EP is streaming in it's entirety over at Paste and for your convenience we've gone ahead and provided an embed of the hook heavy track, Teenage Tide below. Please listen to your AGP blog friends and find this, buy this, and enjoy this [repeat].
