Hoping for more En Ventura

Today I was deeply surprised to find out that the album I’ve heard the most this year isn’t Mermaid Sashimi, Jewellery, Bailar y Llorar or Merriweather Post Pavillion as I predicted. This title belongs to En Ventura’s Los Gandharvas which I never got a chance to review last year because I didn’t know of its existence. Although the band has never actually dissolved in its entirely, En Ventura had lost two of its members who instead devoted their time to other projects such as 60 Tigres and Mr. Racoon. We know learn that there are serious thoughts to get back together to record a second album. As long as they’re able to craft a couple more jewels like “Bienaventura”, “Los Granjeros del Amor”, “Chantilly” and “Hoy La” they’ll keep us happy. Judging from the responses gathered during our Call for Writers people are still not that well informed about netlabels. Los Gandharvas is a great chance to get to know just how splendid a netlabel release can get, ‘casi pop’ at its finest.
