Watch BNLX’s spray-painted hype tour through Minneapolis

BNLX: LPBNLX: LP (Susstones, 11/6/12)

Every now and then, there’s a point at which you have to say “fuck it” and start tagging everything you possibly can. Works of art, hand-rainbow banners, other graffiti — it’s all fair game. Minneapolis-based noise-hawkers BNLX have reached that point, and they’ve taken it upon themselves to put their name on everything imaginable around their hometown.

“The Devil You Know” is a blast of swampy distortion and chugging rhythms that throw everything into disarray, as guitarist/vocalist Ed Ackerson proves when he tags over the star for Polara, which was Ackerson’s first band. Check out the video below.
