DOWNLOAD: Gap Dream - A Little Past Midnight (MP3)
In this writer's opinion, Gap Dream's self-titled debut is one of 2012's most underrated albums, a mix of '60s paisley pop and druggy drone that has ambitions beyond home-recorded origins. Originaly released just on cassette, Burger Records has wisely pressed it on vinyl too. It's available digitally as well and you can stream it below.
The Cleveland band (mainly Gabe Fulvimar on record) are following up the LP with a new single, "Generator," which comes out next week via Suicide Squeeze. We've got the debut of its b-side, an organ-fueled groover called "A Little Past Midnight" which you can download above or stream below.
Gap Dream are hitting the rood soon and will be in NYC for CMJ, including the previously-mentioned Panache showcase at Public Assembly on October 19 with Twerps, Turbo fruits, Violent Bullshit, Xray Eyeballs, Levek, Dent May, Dignan Porch, Mac Demarco, and Vockah Redu (tickets). They'll also play Big Snow on 10/20 w/ MV & EE, Paperhead, Herbcraft.
All tour dates are listed below along with the aformentioned streams.
