“We’re thrilled to be returning to The New World Tavern to present a Holiday benefit show for Toys For Tots. For All Good Kids will feature the formidable line up of Hallelujah The Hills, Guillermo Sexo, & Krill.
Please join us for what promises to be a special night of music while lending a helping hand to those less fortunate this holiday season. The evening will be once again sponsored by our friends at Cisco Brewers Nantucket.
Guillermo Sexo just released the first video for a track off their new album “Dark Spring”. The video for Fall Lens was recorded by Reuben and Ed Gutierrez, and edited by Reuben and Ryan. Thanks to Michael Marotta for featuring it on his stellar music blog, Vanyaland. Check out the video below.
Guillermo Sexo will be opening a fantastic bill of pop singer Sky Ferreira (Capitol Records) and Chicago indie rock band Smith Westerns tonight at the Paradise Rock Club. Guillermo’s set time is 8pm and there’s a good chance it will sell out at the door, so come early. We’ll have copies of the new record, Dark Spring, on CD and freshly pressed vinyl. This will be their first time playing the ‘dise and will be one to remember. See you there!
“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

Weekly Dig Shout out.
Finally, a motto we can all get behind: Hooray for Earth. Home planet to the baddest humanoids in the solar system, Earth really is just the best. But Hooray for Earth is also the name of a New York-based rock band, playing downstairs at the Middle East along with Mean Creek, Guillermo Sexo, and Andre Obin. So when the aliens finally come to decimate all of mankind (which they will), make sure your last words are “hooray for earth.” A little grim? Yes. – Weekly Dig 5.14
Guillermo Sexo emerge from the drawing board to preview three tracks from their forthcoming album, “Dark Spring,” due out in mid-2013. A constantly evolving project formed by Reuben Bettsak circa 2005, Guillermo Sexo hail from Cambridge, Massachusetts, and are a national touring band that have played with the likes of !!!, Polica, and Elephant Stone. This is the first release since since 2011’s self-released “Secret Wild” LP, with a lineup that represents the band in its top form.
Give a listen to the new tracks below. All the songs were recorded with Justin P in the same sessions as the upcoming LP. There will be a release show at TT’s with Young Adults, Creaturos, and Bent Shapes which you don’t want to miss out on. >>>Fbook event
The Living Kills – NYC – Really excited to bring back The Livings Kills to Boston after rocking Tiger Mountain last year. They recently played Meatopia in NYC with Woods and The Slackers and got a nice plug from NBC New York for our show with Brothers at The Knitting Factory! They write: “The Living Kills traffic in a less swaggering, but no less excellent form of rock. If Brothers are like Steppenwolf and The Rolling Stones, The Living Kills are perhaps more like The Velvet Underground — a buzzing, clamoring wreck of noise with sweetly straightforward melodies soaring overhead’” You can stream their excellent album “Angels Without Faces” here. > www.thelivingkills.bandcamp.com — RIYL – Sonic Youth, Spaceman 3, and Man or Astroman?
Lord Jeff – Dripping hippie psych jamz from Northampton. LJ will rule your world. T.Rex mixed with a more fucked up DBanhart…Commence face melting
Sand Reckoner – A relatively new transplant to the Boston scene via Philadelphia Sand Reckoner play bluesy desert psych rock just the way I like it. Michael Marotta of the Boston Phoenix had this to say “The band’s new record, a nine-song, homonymous album clocking in at 35 minutes, is a pinwheel of psychedelic sounds rooted in folk, blues, and ’70s classic rock, with as many trippy, loud songs as gentle, dusty Americana numbers. But all the tracks, from the grunting guitar crunch of “Morning Star” to the folksy, spiraling hymnal “Veil,” have the same sort of dirty, desert-trail vibe.” –Read more:
