« Should Glass Spells’ disco-punk continue to catch on, it would recall another genre-fusing movement that came from Baja California some 12 years ago, when Tijuana artists launched Nortec. Artists like Bostich+Fussible
created dance music using samples of tubas, clarinets, and snare drums from Mexico’s norteño street bands.
But unlike Nortec, which was born in the studio, Glass Spells’ disco-punk is known for its live shows. » – San Diego Reader
