BM Linx is a New York City dance-rock power trio.
CMJ describes BM Linx as: "Purveyors of inventive and original darly-tinged electronic new wave."
"Remember Twilo? Neither do we... but whatever happened there, combined with hundreds of stage performances in New York's lower east side, contributed to (debut album) The Portable Genius. We obviously did not come up with this formula. Gear became more accessible and stages became louder, megaclubs went to mostly the unfortunate leaving the urban kid without a soundtrack. We sold our turntables, picked back up our guitars and hit the new, harder sound of downtown NYC. The clubs are dirtier, the drinks are cheaper and you're on The Guest List if you think you should be."
"This record is our first, and it addresses themes of confusion, entitlement, loss, and reckless abandon. It is less a cry for help than a call to arms against unchecked egos and boring nights. We're bringing back the power trio, adding electronic beats under the guitars and leaving the censors to the majors."
BM Linx was a psychedelic rock group formed in 2005 by Tony Diodore (guitar & violin) with Jonathan Murray (bass), and Andrew Griffith (drums). The origin of the name stems from a friend of Diodore's, who owned a Mercury Lynx, but put a BMW badge on the front and called it a BM Linx.
The band released its EP, The Portable Genius in 2006, and full-length album Black Entertainment in 2008. The band toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe, performing at many festivals, but have been on hiatus since 2010, and their third record remains unfinished.
