Craft Spells

I am late to the party on this one, but Craft Spells are one of my favorite new bands. Their indie bedroom/goth/dance/dream pop ( I promise, no more buzzwords) makes for a consistently compelling listen. They keep the drums high enough in the mix to give the songs a sense of movement and purpose instead of just drifting around the room. Some of the tracks have almost dance rhythm - kind of like Lindstrøm meets Beach Fossils (sorry couldn't help myself). You can definitely hear the influences here, but it is still a consistently great record. Craft Spells debut album, Idle Labor, was released last year on Captured Tracks. Highly recommended.
