Gap Dream: Generator b/w A Little Past Midnight
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?.
