Things got a bit raw on BOSTON ACCENTS today, but we're still grateful Reuben Bettsak of GUILLERMO SEXO dropped by the WFNX studio to premiere some new jams off his band's latest EP, Bring Down Your Arms. Here's what we spun:
GUILLERMO SEXO “Neon Lights”
ANIMAL TALK “Mama Was A Teenage Rocker” -- Playing Saturday at the Middle East for the Susan Constant record release party.
Our inaugural playlist of 2013 is hellbent for fuzz, kicking off with a ferocious track from indie veterans GUILLERMO SEXO. “Echo Out My Call” is a buzzed-out call-to-arms, and the first serving off the band’s new EP Bring Down Your Arms, out digitally this week. Rueben Bettsak of GSexo will be a guest on Boston Accents today, January 17, debuting his band's new songs and selecting other faves from around town (5pm EST, wfnx.
UPDATE: Speedy Ortiz can't make it out from NoHo due to the snow outside, so Varsity Drag are filling in. Gonna shake up my WFNX playlist @ 5pm and add "Billy Ruane." Listen in at WFNX.com.
Very fitting that on a day where My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields announced a follow-up his 1991 shoegaze classic Loveless, there will be lots of beautiful sonic sludge thrown around within the friendly walls of Great Scott.
