Gap Dream – Ali Baba 7″

Here’s another from GAP DREAM (or Gabriel Fulvimar), the one-man bedroom band from Cleveland, OH. Coming from Suicide Squeeze Records, Ali Baba picks up right where his self-titled album left us.

If you made a point to check out to that album, then you’ll have a good idea of what you’re getting here. It’s clear why they would leave a song like “Generator” for its own 7″ – it’s as catchy as they come with glowing guitars, reverb-drenched vox and poppy hand claps, simultaneously creating the colorful, murky swirl that is the trademark of anything Gap Dream. Throbbing bass lines and electronic percussion supply the mid-paced rhythm, leaving Fulvimar plenty of room for his awesome guitar work and echoing vocals. There’s a slew of his intoxicating guitar licks scattered within, clearly evidenced by the first thirty seconds of the song.

B-side “A Little Past Midnight” keeps the high-vibes flowing with more chilly guitars and spacey, strung-out textures. This helps lock in a term like “hybrid space pop” for Fulvimar’s unique brand here, but you probably already knew we thought that. Now check out these two tracks below!
