Guillermo Sexo – Secret Wild on Ash Gray Proclamation Best of 2011 List

 

#19 Guillermo Sexo – Secret Wild [Boy Girl Boy Girl]

Boston’s dream pop quartet, Guillermo Sexo issued their fourth LP, Secret Wild in July and provided a melodic and discordant soundtrack to the end of summer. Noelle Dorsey takes the lion share of vocal duties with goose bump inducing affect, leaving guitarist Reuben Bettsak focused in on delivering stunning atmospherics, hypnotic guitar lines, and airy psychedelics. Secret Wild is a rich and varied offering and one of the finest things we heard in 2011.

TM2 poster

Future Carnivores – New indie project from Guillermo Sexo’s Reuben Bettsak and Noelle Dorsey and ME AND JOAN COLLINS Bo Barringer.  Debut release in the near future –

LISTEN

The Living Kills (NYC) – These guys and gal blew me away when they played with Guillermo Sexo at Piano’s in Brooklyn on their Fall tour.  They were one of the best bands Guillermo Sexo played with on the tour playing spaced out psych rock taking cues from Spaceman 3, Hawkwind, Sonic Youth, and The Black Angels.  so trust me.. Also there is no better environment to see this band in than the basement of the Cambridge Elks.  Don’t miss em. 

LISTEN

Soccer Mom – One of my favorite bands in Boston hands down..  Dig LOUD grungy shoegaze??  Course you do.  LISTEN to their new 10″ You Are Not Going to Heaven.   Bring yo earplugz!
