BLXPLTN (pronounced Blaxploitation) is an Austin, TX-based trio comprised of TaSziin Muerte (electro drums and vocals), Javelin Hortsmann (bass, synth and vocals) and Lil K Big Q (guitar and vocals) have developed a reputation for a sound that meshes elements of anarcho-punk, industrial electronica and hip-hop that bears a resemblance to the likes of Ministry, Atari Teenage Riot, Joy Division, Light Asylum and others. “Start Fires” is the band’s latest single and it’s a track that appropriately burns through its 4 minute run time with buzzing synths and bass, and howled vocals.  

From this single alone, I’m looking forward to catching the band at this year’s Afropunk Festival
