BNLX is a noisepop/indie rock band from Minneapolis led by guitarist/producer Ed Ackerson.

Brooklyn Vegan: "BNLX is pretty awesome: blistering post-punk inspired rock, with male/female, call-and-response vocals, feedback, harmonies, old-school drum machines and ridiculously catchy choruses."

BIOGRAPHY
BNLX's full-length debut "LP" follows up on the band's acclaimed (and now very rare!) series of handmade, limited-edition quarterly EP releases. Band members Ed Ackerson (guitar, vocals), Ashley Ackerson (bass, vocals), and David Jarnstrom (drums) went into the renowned Flowers Studio in Minneapolis and banged out this collection of their catchiest, most energetic and mysterious material yet.

Highlight tracks include the singles “Vibrant”, “1929”, "Devil You Know" and “Everything Must Go”, plus awesomized versions of BNLX favorites “Meet Me on the Barricades” and “Burn the Boats”. The band took the album format as a challenge, determined to make a release that was vital and engaging from top to bottom in the tradition of the classic indie rock records they love. Tracks like “Got Nothing On You”, “Everything Must Go”, the corporation-baiting “Message From HR”, and fifty second opening riff blast/German language singalong "999" are anything but filler. The band's trademark sonic experimentation, wry crypto-revolutionary rhetoric, and fun and freaky textural juxtapositions are present now more than ever. Breathlessly clocking in at just under 36 minutes, there's not a wasted second on the first BNLX full-length ride!

BNLX is a 100% DIY enterprise, writing, arranging, performing and recording everything in the 55408 on its own agenda in the service of the Industry of Human Happiness.
