CD Review: Flashback To The Eighties With The New Debut Album From BNLX

From Minnesota comes the new rock trio BNLX with their self-titled debut album. The band’s raw underground sound reflex’s the early eighties alternative rock of The Jesus And Mary Chain and X.

The album starts off strong with the synthesizer driven pop rock of “Vibrant” and the more mainstream guitar streaming of “1929,” which really shows off the vocal compatibility between husband and wife band members, Ed Ackerson and Ashley Ackerson. BNLX finally bring out their raw, garage-rock, punk-like energy in “Devil You Know,” and “Message From HR.” They set the music to cruise with “Meet Me On The Barricades” and “Mixtape” as they have mastered that retro-eighties rock sound.
