The folks at Burger continue to dish it out in 2012 and the S/T affair from Cleveland's Gap Dream is no exception. Now pressed to the deep grooves of vinyl (damn straight) after a sold out tape run earlier in the year, GD's Gabe Fulvimar runs through a few of the same nostalgia-pop veins as fellow Burger bro Sam Flax, albeit with the Dire Straits notions replaced by a melted candle nod to 90's guitar pop, 60's phaser chasers and a bit of pych-addled Byrds stringers thrown in for good measure (see the geetar twang on "Go Ahead"). Jumping from Burger mailorder customer to Burger frontrunner seems like a denim clad fairytale but Fulvimar's got the pop chops to pull it off, keeping things decidedly mellow, all bedroom smoke swirl and sunnyside swinging throughout the whole album. Its easy to see why folks are crawling out of their scoff-addled enclaves to throw a heap of praise on this one and you'd be well advised to pick it up pronto.
