Guillermo Sexo – Secret Wild “New England Deli” August CD of the Month

Guillermo Sexo - Sercret Wild Rough Artwork 400

Guillermo Sexo’s Secret Wild begins with the aptly titled, “Color The Noise”. The hollow-bodied guitar effects give the song a retro feel while their art noise approach gives it an entirely contemporary feel. Add slightly monotone vocals that split the difference between Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and the Velvet Underground’s Nico and you have a formula for success.“Skyline” cranks up the art-noise while dialing back the retro. “Secret Wild” pares everything back, stripping down to a near-acoustic delivery. Most of the tracks stretch out nicely, clocking in at four-plus minutes, allowing them to breathe and find their groove. A notable exception to the long-form tendency of Secret Wild is “Green Eyes”, clocking in at under two minutes, which finds the band experimenting with a quick burst of garage-punk. Secret Wild represents another leap forward and entertaining evolution in the sound that Guillermo Sexo has been refining for more than seven years now.   The New England Deli– August 2011
