Devastating solo project from one of the dudes from Oakland's NOPES, this release was well and deservedly hyped by relevant independent music press/es last year....but here, we are irrelevant. Fault is a brilliant bedroom mix of '80s UK post punk (I'm talking heavyweights here - THE FALL and JOY DIVISION don't get dropped lightly), JJ BURNEL, and early Chicago industrial, even if that combination is a total accident. Hopelessly hip, even if by accident, STUNTED could live as comfortably on the AmRep roster as in an intimate West Oakland kitchen gig that no one made flyers for and you didn't find out about until the next week....it's good y'all. it's really good.
