[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen we launched our fancy new V:Player yesterday, we selected one band from each of the six inaugural channels to represent that genre’s overall sound. We tabbed Guillermo Sexo for the “Boston” channel, because, well, they’re from Boston. But we cheated — the music of Reuben Bettsak, Noell Dorsey, and company could have very well fit into a few other options, like “Rock,” or “Pop,” or “Indie.”

That’s always been the majesty of Guillermo Sexo’s back-lit valley-gaze. September’s systematically complex Dark Spring was a massive leap forward, sonically, for the band, and showed so many different sides no two reviews read the same.

As the band prepares to hit the Paradise Rock Club stage tomorrow night, November 13, with Sky Ferreira and Smith Westerns, the Boston veterans today released a new video for the Dark Spring’s latest single, the seasonally-appropriate “Fall Lens” (at least in title).

“Fall Lens” is a musical cardigan suitable for late autumn’s annual spiral towards winter, and its video, directed by G-Sexo’s Reuben Bettsak, is a chromatic swan dive through Brixton in reverse.

It’s a nice bit of color on a morning in Boston when all you see is white. And we’re excited to premiere it today on Vanyaland.

Win tickets to see Guillermo Sexo tomorrow at the Paradise Rock Club by emailing me at michael@vanyaland.com with I <3 SKY in the subject line -- no disrespect to Sexo, we know this is their video premiere and all that, but we gotta keep it consistent with the V:List, ya dig? — and we’ll select a winner at random early Wednesday morning. Want some Guillermo Sexo vinyl? Email me with I <3 SEXO and you'll be entered to win their hot-off-the-presses 12-inch.

Echo out your call and get in it to win it.
