VIDEO: Gap Dream’s “Strong Love”

Gap Dream recently came out with a split 7″ single with Part Time, a split release between the Burger and Lollipop labels, and Gap Dream decided to create a video for their side, which was directed by Jack Sample. “Strong Love” is a strong song, visualized by some country karaoke action at a bar/restaurant with a tiki influence.

VIDEO: Gap Dream’s “58th Street Fingers (Live from Burgerama 2013)”

If someone were to tell you “get in the van”, what would you expect to find inside? Drugs? Sex fiends? A waterbed (as my dad attempted to do with our van when I was a kid, but it ended up being an unfinished bed setup)? For the people of, it’s all about finding bands and getting them to perform a song or two inside, to get groups to jam in what is a mobile sound studio. This time around, Gap Dream take a song from their 2012 self-titled debut on Burger Records and have a blast at the Burgerama Festival.

SOME STUFFS: Free The Robots remix Feeding People

If you’ve heard of Feeding People, then you may know of their current single, “Island Universe”. They’ve allowed Free The Robots to do a remix of it, and it’s brilliant. If this remix makes you groove on and turn towards their music, awesome. Have a listen.

They have one scheduled show in November at the Echo in Los Angeles, where Cosmonauts, The Abigails, and Gap Dream will also be on the bill.
