Adventure

Add Date: March 15 

Artist: Adventure 

Album: The Lesser Known 

Label: Carpark

Genre: Electronica

Comments: With a sound highly tied to the '80s, Adventure (a.k.a. Baltimore native Benny Boeldt) returns with the album The Lesser Known, a record defined by sharp snares, heavy synths, and pop sensibilities. Added vocals--particulary the repeating, choral-esque lines--solidify the '80s pop vibe, while melodic moments add a dramatic, disco-esque quality. A high-octane adventure, to be sure (get it?!). Try tracks 2, 3, and 6 ("Lights Out", a heavy, pounding dance-club jam with some 8-bit moments--think Crystal Castles, except happier and more pop).
