(Sorry for the lack of posts lately - holidays were a busy time for me.)
Last week, Letting Up Despite Great Faults played as part of the line-up for the first night of The French Semester's January residency at The Echo. Originally, I went to see latter band (who I had caught at last year's Eagle Rock Music Festival and was quite impressed); however, by the time they took the stage the audience's conversations were overtaking the music - therefore, I gave up a few songs in. (The Spires were also on this night's bill, and went on first, but their set will not be available due to technical issues)
Letting Up Despite Great Faults fall into the self-described "shoegaze" category as the headlining band, so everything worked out to a certain extent. They recently released their self-titled first full-length album, which made up the majority of this night's setlist. A cover of New Order's "Ceremony" rounded out the show. Recording came out pretty well; however, vocals may be a little low in the mix.
