Song of the Day: 'Strangers' by the Rebel Light

Southern California is what you might call a pretty big place; trying to capture its spirit in song is a mug's game. But that doesn't stop irresistably sunny, indie-pop band the Rebel Light from making a more than game effort on the '60s and '00s-splashed track "Strangers."

It was freezing, and the line for Rebecca & Fiona on Friday night was 20 deep. House music spilled out of Europe Night Club with the same intensity as the waiting women who jiggled out of their tops as they bounced to stay warm.

The crowd seemed sparse as the showtime approached, but appearances can be deceiving. Locals Mathias & the Pirates took the stage to open the night, and by the close of their first song, the wallflowers had emerged from the booths and shadows and the influx of returning smokers filled the gaps to stuff the floor with a crowd even headliners could appreciate. By the time Dessa took the stage, there wasn't a straggler in the room and all eyes were fixed on the Firebird stage.

Latin-infused dance music doesn't get much more insanely catchy than "Como Te Vas" by Oakland, Calf. band Trails and Ways. For the bilingual among you, this is an "oreja gusano supremo."

Daft Punk
"Random Access Memories"
Columbia

Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories" tests every instinct of a fan of music. What is a fan's responsibility, if any, to an artist? What is an artist's responsibility, if any, to the fan?

On a night three of the most danceable rising acts in pop shared a single auditorium, the crowd spurned its seats in favor of returning the elation billowing off the stage. Passion Pit, with an immaculate set from Matt & Kim, ended St. Louis' February with a unique high point.
