XPoNential Music Festival 2010 Artist

Fool's Gold

Fool's GoldWestern pop sensibility meets African melody and rhythm in Los Angeles collective Fool's Gold frenetic yet soulful collection of songs on their 2009 self-titled debut. Drawing inspiration from wide-ranging sources like Congolese and Malian music, kraut-rock, Motown soul, and modern indie-rock, the result is a danceable collage of sounds new and old, foreign and familiar. Sharing one another's eclectic tastes, vocalist and bassist Luke Top and lead guitarist Lewis Pesacov formed the group first as a side-project, but it quickly grew to a troupe of eleven. Now a tight, colorful flurry of strings, brass, wind and percussion, the group's explosive live performance has earned them touring spots alongside the diverse company of Cat Power, Local Natives and a Senegalese kora master Youssoupha Sidibe.
