Letting Up Despite Great Faults

Posted in music by welcomebemymuse on June 5, 2010

Letting Up Despite Great Faults is a pretty long name for a band. Mike, who is in charge for the Vocals, Programming and plays the guitar, agrees on that. “It’s taken from a Blonde Redhead song. It’s also self-reflecting, self-deprecating, and way too long.”

The story, how the three band members met though, is short. “Through Craigslist. We’re hoping our next member will be found through another means just so when people ask this question the answer won’t be so short.” Letting Up Despite Great Faults released their first EP in 2006 with only Kent (Bass, Keys) and Mike. Chris (Drums) joined one year later.

The Los Angeles based band played their mix of Indiepop and Electronic music at festivals like Noise Pop Fest (SF) and SXSW (Austin). “At home, we love playing at Spaceland”. Ask Mike to tell something about him and his mates and he would say “Mike – bad haircut, Chris – hi-fives way too much (seriously) and Kent – the most rational person in the band”.

What inspires them? “The fear of being insignificant, boring, and idle.” Good answer. Great music. Good luck!
