Dreamy nostalgic pop music from Stockton, CA and recorded largely at home, Craft Spells epitomizes the new DIY Californian sound. Described by Pitchfork as "music for bedsitters who dream about being social", SF Weekly suggests that “Vallesteros creates a near-perfect pop song like "Party Talk". His Ian Curtis-influenced mutterings are a striking contrast for his twinkly instrumental soundscapes”. The Guardian says of debut album, Idle Labor “this is winsome techno, wan electropop… think Factory if it had opened an office on Venice Beach”. Must see/hear sounds from the hot four piece.
