New dance rock, hip-hop from Craft Spells

Hark, two new ones from San Francisco/Seattle band Craft Spells. First, a tightly wound performance of '80s-esque dance rock gem "Love Well Spent," live in Portland at Music Fest Northwest:

And before it gets taken down from soundcloud (I have a feeling), check front-man/producer Justin Vallesteros composing under the name Glass Mural, with an instrumental hip-hop song that twinkles and pulses called "Swinging Sleeves."

In case you couldn't tell, embedded in there is a sample of "Love You Down" by Ready for the World, or perhaps covered by Inoj. Or at least I'm fairly certain it is.
