  • Summary: This seven-track EP from the Northern California indie pop band led by Justin Vallesteros is a follow-up to its 2011 debut full-length, Idle Labor.

    Even more so than their debut album, Gallery shows just how impressive Craft Spells can be and sets them up as the synth pop revivalists to beat in 2012.
  2. 70
    Gallery does little to further their musical template, but piggybacked with Idle Labor, it does cement Craft Spells as a contemporary master of the genre.

    An utterly pleasant summer diversion.

    Gallery falls short of living up to what Idle Labor promised, feeling more like a case of the leftovers.

    Packed with shimmering riffs, synths and loops which sees the Californian mastermind diversify his much-tipped take on 'alternative 80s'.

    Gallery is an enjoyable offering from Craft Spells.

    Gallery is an effort by a young artist who stylistically manages to be consistent yet not sophisticated, involving yet not affecting.
