New Release: BONNAVENTURE JAMES – Buena Aventura

April 24, 2012

Our good friends over at Silent Shout recently turned us on to Calgary synth-pop producer Bonnaventure James and boy are we glad they did. The young producers debut album has been on serious repeat over at The iM and now it’s time to share it with you.

Check out Buena Aventura in the Bandcamp player below – the album is chalk full of tracks like No Science, Cola and Poor House that are sure to getting you moving one way or another; in your seat, in your car or perhaps you might get up and dance around the room uncontrollably. Whatever the case, this is a fine piece of work as far as we’re concerned.

For more on Bonnaventure James, hit him up on Facebook.
