Craft Spells announce new album Idle Labor, drink magic potions on tour

Craft Spells are poised to be the newest chill-glo-lo-wave-fi band to capture your attention this year, but before they were being written about on esteemed music sites, such as the one you’re currently reading, they were struggling to get people to notice them. Luckily, their name isn’t Craft Spells for no reason, and they were able to convince the guys behind Captured Tracks to drink a special potion (similar to the one Charlie Sheen is currently on) and put out their first album Idle Labor on March 29. Further spells were cast on Beach Fossils and thus they agreed to let the band have the opening spot on their upcoming spring tour. Double double toil and chillwave, brah.
