Craft Spells to Release Idle Labor This Month, Followed by Tour With Beach Fossils

cratfy.jpg
Newly minted Seattleite Justin Vallesteros and his band, Craft Spells, just announced that Captured Tracks will release their debut full-length on March 29 and follow with a national tour. The LP is called Idle Labor. We've previously raved about Craft Spells' tracks "Party Talk" and "After the Moment"; this morning the Fader premiered another new song called "You Should Close The Door", and aptly described it as "a sped-up highlight reel of downer moments from a teenage diary." It's beautiful stuff--there's rainy-day music, there's summer music, and then there's music for any time of the year and any mood of your brain, and Craft Spells' tunes are the latter.

Following the album's release, Craft Spells is set to hit the road with labelmates Beach Fossils, as well as one Brooklyn show with fellow baby bander Cloud Nothings. Tour dates--including a May show at Chop Suey--after the jump.
