Hurricane Katrina sent brothers Kentrell "Krispy" Lindsey and Alvin "Joey" Lindsey out of New Orleans East - first to Houston, then to Los Angeles, where they found a musical home as The Knux. Their debut album, Remind Me in 3 Days ... got some attention for its mix of hip-hop with electronica and dance rock, but since then, their musical restlessness has kept them from establishing a musical identity that audiences could get a lock on.

They're no longer on Interscope, but they're about to release a new album, KTWN. Here's the first track from it, "Animal."

I interviewed Kintrell in 2009.
