Yesterday Suicide Squeeze released a 7-inch single from Gap Dream, the the bedroom project of Cleveland's Gabe Fulvimar; the single is called "Ali Baba," which is a little confusing because neither of the two songs on it are called "Ali Baba."
Title confusions notwithstanding, it's a fantastic release. The two shuffling, psychedelic tracks, "Generator" and "A Little Past Midnight," feature warm beats and desultory guitars; Fulvimar's spacey, mumbling vocals make him sound like a computerized Lou Reed. It's fuzzy, cozy stuff, hazy in a heartwarming way.

And here's a new video for "Generator":
The "Ali Baba" 7-inch, which is limited to 750 copies, is available now via Suicide Squeeze.
If you, like me, listened to these songs and thought, "Give me an album's worth of this stuff!", you're in luck--"Ali Baba" is the follow-up to Gap Dream's spacey self-titled full-length debut, released on Burger Records earlier this year. Stream the record on Bandcamp, buy it on Burger's site.
