Craft Spells is Justin Paul Vallestoros; he's just realeased his debut LP, 'Idle Labor', on Captured Tracks and it's pretty sweet. He takes the poppy aspects of New Wave and warps it a little, adding tropical flavour by blending in sun-drenched, jangly melodies and blocky percussion. I really like the twinkling, playful 'After the Moment', which has had an awesome video made by Tyler Williams, the guy who makes a lot of Coma Cinema's videos, and the echoey crooning of 'Party Talk'.
