Craft Spells

In the cold and dreary winter of 2009, alone in his bedroom and hidden from the darkness of the world outside Justin Paul Vallesteros had begun working on something that would change his life forever. What began as a couple notes played in experimentation soon transformed into vibrant melodies that soon shook Vallesteros’ musical foundation to the core. Guitar chords laced over pulse sating synth melodies and drum rhythms was a departure from Justin’s previous work; he began to create the dreamy nostalgic pop music that is Craft Spells. Justin is a California native who now finds residence in the mid-size town of Stockton, the heart of California. Craft Spells is the epitome of the recent uprising of the DIY music scene. Coming from a place not known for its musical history or impact on music culture it seemed destined for Craft Spells to stay as a bedroom pop project with no final destination in sight. But soon the shear amount of blog volume his work began to generate was unimaginable. Sites like Weekly Tape Deck, Pasta Primavera, No Modest Bear and Pitchfork’s Forkcast took notice and thus began the never ending worldwide posting and re-posting on blog after blog of Craft Spells. The sound is led by Justin’s blissful voice, backed behind beautiful guitar melodies over heavenly synths, pop basslines and looped rhythms. Captured Tracks has released 7″ single for the song “Party Talk” and will release the debut LP due out in Spring 2011 called Idle Labor.

    New album is boring. I wish I could like it cause Idle Labor & Gallery are two of my favorite releases of the past 5 years but I just can't get into it at all, unfortunately.

    Nausea just grows and grows, what a beautiful and sophisticated album. I think it's his best work to date.

    Was pleasantly surprised by Nausea. It's not boring at all, in my opinion. Definitely one of my favourites of the year so far!

    I have to agree. The new album is boring compared to the debut. Not at all what I was expecting. I for one much prefer the synths.

    lame? they're both very popular, overrated and terrible and this kid who follows what p4k tells him to listen to likes both of them.

    @Skeletocat: I like that you like k-pop AND Craft Spells, but it's really lame to criticize artists like Lana Del Rey and The 1975, like what the hell.. k-pop is way more 'poppier' than both artists.. if you want respect then also show respect to other people's library...

    Yeah this is different than Idle Labor to say the least....not as catchy. Its decent tho. Not bad but not anything special really either. I could see how someone would think this is boring.

  • skeletocat

    coming from the guy with only p4k approved 'indie' artists in his charts thats means nothing. ' U' need to try listening to more music. keep listening to lana del rey for shitty pop music and look down upon k-pop when it's in fact superior.
