Fool’s Gold shines with news

on October 08, 2009, 4:35pm

It seems as if musicians, those creative dynamos, are never satisfied with what they have. One successful band isn’t enough for Lewis Pesacov of Foreign Born and so he’s made another band, Fool’s Gold. A band who has just released their first album and their first video. A band who you’d be a fool to pass up listening to. There, we said it.

Pesacov is joined by Luke Top and other musicians who have played with bands like We Are Scientists and the Fall. The sound on the band’s self-titled debut is global in its reach. With American indie rock meeting the pop workings of Argentina and beyond, it’s American world music done with an international tinge. Their video for the song “Surprise Hotel”, which moves along with a rhythm culled from Paul Simon via Graceland, features elderly food fights, dogs, bikini clad sax players, and tons of other stuff you’d expect to see in a wacky Dutch student art film possibly influenced by Weekend At Bernie’s. And if that weren’t enough, the band hit the road last week for a two-month long adventure with Metronomy alongside Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.

The self-titled debut is out now on IAMSOUND!
