Afropop from Los Angeles! Fool's Gold is an eclectic collective centered around Lewis Pesacov (guitar) and Luke Top (vocals), but can boast as many as 12 members, featuring (ex-)members of Foreign Born, We Are Scientists and The Fall. Musically they refer as much to Orchestra Boabab and Bembeya Jazz as to Local Natives and Vampire Weekend. Check out their clip for 'Surprise Hotel': this is how great your summer will be!
