Dark Spring is the 5th release from the shimmering Boston quartet Guillermo Sexo. Its sprawling collection of 11 songs produced and recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur JR, Chelsea Light Moving, Thurston Moore, Speedy Ortiz). The songs echo with fuzzed out intensity, dense dreamy mood swings, and psych-pop song craft at it’s best-all elements working together to make it Guillermo Sexo’s most vital, majestic record to date.

In Justin Pizzoferrato’s words- “I’ve worked with the band for years, and this record is their best! It covers a lot of ground and has a lot of layers. At it’s core it’s really brilliantly written and performed music.”The 11 tracks on Dark Spring are diverse in style, but retain a cohesion in sound spanning multiple genres- mixing flourishes of shoegaze, 90′s guitar fuzz, dream pop, and psychedelia in their own distinct way. “Meow Metal” and “Dark Spring” are spacey with lush, layered waves of guitar lines washing over Noell Dorsey’s beautiful vocals.

“Bring Down Your Arms,” “Echo Out My Call,” and “Fall Lens” give a glimpse at principle song writer Reuben Bettsak’s ability to churn out propelling, unrelenting psych-fuzz hits. “Coyote”is one of the most dynamic and expansive songs the band has written to date, clocking in at around 8 minutes. Noell’s vocals soar over layers of driving guitars, Elliott Anderson’s massive bass and Ryan Connelly’s syncopated rythyms.
