Letting Up Despite Great Faults – 'Bulletproof Girl' Monday 08 October, 2012
The now Austin-based dream pop act Letting Up Despite Great Faults release their new album ‘Untogether’ this week. The second single ‘Bulletproof Girl’ is available for free download, or else grab the CD, digital or limited edition red vinyl here. The four piece have moved on from the jangly indie pop sounds of their debut record (2009) and even from the ‘Paper Crush’ EP (2011). Instead, the 808 is in full effect, backed by electronics and synths. The vocal lines take a back seat in several tracks, something that may divide existing fans. Not unlike the shift Craft Spells made between ‘Idle Labor’ and ‘Gallery’ EP. But don’t take my word for it, stream the whole album over at Bandcamp.
