SoCal quartet Glass Spells cut their teeth in Calexico, playing shows on both sides of the border and anywhere else their propulsive disco-punk could get bodies moving. The co-ed band — bassist/synth player Anthony Ramirez, vocalist Sue Gonzalez, synth player Michael Rasco and drummer Mallory Garcia — have been working on a follow-up to 2014’s “Desperate Love” EP, and the new single “Rebellion” (out Friday) announces itself with a starburst of electronics before teleporting you straight to the dancefloor. It’s kind of DFA done DIY — over bumptious synths and funky bass, Gonzalez’s punky vocals imagine the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or the Gossip doing !!! or Moving Units. Disco dynamos, take note.
