Reviews: Gap Dream - 'Shine Your Light'

Gap Dream is back (this time with the assistance of Co-Producer Bobby Harlow), this time to spread his electro-synth fantasies into your dream realm. Gap Dream (Gabe Fulvimar, who used to be the bassist in the Black Keys) released one of the most pronounced debut albums in the independent scene last year via. Burger, and it isn't hard to see why it sold out so quickly. Fulvimar's unlikely blend of dream-pop and 80's synth stylings work together perfectly, and along with his misty vocals, create a unique product worthy of examining with an open mind. Not only does Fulvimar write spectacular songs, but he had the good sense to send samples in to the good people at Burger Records, who loved it, and it's easy to find out why. Standout tracks "Chill Spot" (released as a vinyl single), "Shine Your Light", "Fantastic Sam" and "Love Is Not Allowed" use both Harlow and Fulvimar's musical talents to an advantage even though they come from completely different musical backgrounds (Harlow from Detroit rock outfit The GO! and Fulvimar from the previously mentioned electronica).

Rating- 5/5 Stars
