Suicide Squeeze recently released the “Ali Baba” single from Gap Dream, and the band just unveiled the B-Side from the single as well as the Michael Cullen directed video for the A-Side.
Somewhere in pre-dawn Cleveland, Gabe Fulvimar hunkers down in his bedroom with his laptop, a guitar, a drum machine, and a Fender Rhodes and records songs under the name Gap Dream. Before you groan over another “bedroom pop” artist, spend two seconds absorbing Fulvimar’s mystical, stoned-to-the-bone one-man garage rock. If Lou Reed and Jason Pierce had MacBooks back when they were starting out, it wouldn’t be hard to imagine them kicking out a jam like “A Little Past Midnight”. It’s almost tempting to claim Gap Dream’s ability to make such warm, wacked out, psychedelic grooves in such technologically-cold hermit-like conditions as Fulvimar’s crowning achievement. But the process behind the music doesn’t mean shit when you hear Fulvimar’s smooth harmonies, warbling tremolo guitar, and reverberating haze sewn together into a tune as beguiling as “Generator”.
These two songs are available through Suicide Squeeze Records on a limited edition 7” + download code (250 copies on lavender vinyl, 500 on black) and digital worldwide on October 2nd. May we suggest you dig into these songs in the same manner they were crafted? In your bedroom, late at night, under the influence of your favorite intoxicating substance
The 7” single will be available as part of Suicide Squeeze’s single series whose 2012 series boasts an impressive array of talent that also includes the likes of King Tuff, Iron & Wine, White Woods, Nobunny, Wax Idols, Cloud Nothings, and Julianna Barwick.
