“We first got a taste of the new Guillermo Sexo record, Dark Spring, in the dead of winter. Three tracks emerged in the form of the self-released Bring Down Your Arms EP, led by the blistering fuzzed out battle-cry “Echo Out My Call.” Turns out, all that was just a tease, and a sign of a massive leap forward for the Boston quintet. Dark Spring, out Tuesday off Midriff Records, is a pretty complex album, almost human-like in its tendencies and attitudes. It’s at times moody and distant, and others warm and consoling. There’s a textured emotion to the entire thing, swallowed as a whole, and that’s why Vanyaland is honored to premiere Dark Spring as an exclusive stream from our friends at Midriff.”  Guillermo Sexo maintain that seemingly perfect balance of clean-edged garage rock and spacey psychedelic, packaged up in polished reverb-heavy romp. The duetted vocal dynamic on “Fall Lens” brings to mind other familiar locals like Mean Creek and Bent Shapes, but still remains signature with a bit of darkness mixed into on otherwise heavy but digestible tone. Don’t let the feel of one track fool you though. Dark Spring hits on very different levels, with the amps turned up on more noise-rocky tracks, and chilling echo ringing in on more acoustic tunes” – Vanyaland – album stream and interview 9/19/13 – by Michael Marrotta
