Fool's Gold - Surprise Hotel (Track 14/14)
Album - 7" Single
Fool's Gold is a Los Angeles collective blending Hebrew-infused soul with a westernized African pop aesthetic. The group was formed in early '06 when Lewis Pesacov, guitarist for Foreign Born, met LA local singer-songwriter Luke Top at a summer ceremony of Cass McComb's wedding. After working over a year on material , the band has just released their first official studio recordings, including our featured "Surprise Hotel" on their limited 7" single. I was fortunate to see their one-of-a-kind live show last week for the Getty's Summer Sessions and any inertia had been wiped out by the 10+ on stage, giving the getty-goers a poly-rhythmic groove with their world influence via the descending California sunshine. I even saw an oldy golden girl doing 360 spins on her wheelchair in the front row of their packed performance. Here's a little video clip of what we all got to see and please pardon the uncontrollable unsteady cam from the music ruling my world.
