quick take : craft spells : idle labor

03 May 2011 · No Comments

Craft Spells - Idle LaborNew Order would decidely have struck me as a useful point of reference for Idle Labor even if the cover art didn’t recall Power, Corruption & Lies. As it is, I’m wondering if they want to get threatening letters from some lawyer. Craft Spells’ flowers are less gloomy, of course, and so is their music. As you’d expect from an artist on Captured Tracks, it’s also a lot more low-tech. And it’s not like there are no other influences audible in Idle Labor, it’s just that the debt to New Order is so specific that the other elements are actually a little jarring.
