BNLX - BNLX

Download whole album for US$ 9.99

Rock couple Ed and Ashley Ackerson of BNLX take it to another level on their group's first full album.

After the seventh BNLX EP, however, it became apparent that a full-length record was the next logical step. "So many people just kept asking when we were going to do it, we sort of just gave in," Ashley recalled. Ed added, "A lot of people on the business end of things don't really take you seriously until you put out a full-length."

The Ackersons and Jarnstrom certainly took the making of "LP" seriously, holing up for many days over the summer to create a cohesive but varied mix from the band's sonic palette. Tracks range from the poppier New Orderly gems "Everything Must Go" and "Vibrant" to the dark and snaky "Peacock Throne" to the snarky punk workout "Message From HR," a song inspired by Ashley's job at a local retail corporation.

But they didn't want to lose the fast and loose energy of the EPs, so the 36-minute album whizzes by in a dizzying whirl. It's no coincidence that the record begins and ends with the two most spastic songs, the snarling 50-second burst "999" and the rapper-mocking finale "Mixtape." Best of all, the cover features a photo of the Ackersons' cuddly Boston terrier, Wiggy, his payoff for letting Mom and Dad hang around the studio.

"We still had a lot of fun making this," Ed confirmed. In other words: mission accomplished.
