iTunes Editors’ Notes

Gap Dream is Gabriel Fulvimar, one of those wizards like John Vanderslice who make music bursting at the seams pretty much on their own while sounding like a four-piece band. This is the second outing from Fulvimar, an Ohio native now in SoCal. While it moves on from the retro-garage sound of his self-titled debut, Shine Your Light keeps that vibe of being well marinated in Those Who Came Before. Here we’ve got hints of ELO, The Kinks, and Kraftwerk, to name a few, with whooshing synths carving enticing grooves that are impossible to leave—just try stopping “Shine Your Love” or “Chill Spot” before they end. Fulvimar’s double-tracked, reverbed voice beams in from some other plane. Intersecting synths of differing breeds (rhythm keepers, regal faux trumpets, dance floor inducements, vintage B-movie strays) dominate Shine Your Light, rendering guitars almost useless on tunes like ”Fantastic Sam.” That song is all playful swagger, with echoing percussive thuds, handclaps, and buoyant keyboards; you hardly notice the lack of guitar. When it does show up, gritty and trailing some garage rock vapors from another time, it’s just an added treat.

This be the bomb!

I like all these sounds!!!

"Caught me by surprise"

Very well done...anybody that gives me hints of ELO and The Brian JonesTown Massacre is making quality music.

Gap Dream equals a great feel

Purchased taking a chance considering reviewers referenced ELO sounds. Was not disappointed! The music feels oh so good! Thanks, I love to play along with my guitar.

A fateful 2010 meeting with the Burger Records crew during one of the label's Burgermania package tours led to Fulvimar recording in earnest, inspired by the psych pop...
