Tracka de Day: Fool's Gold 'Surprise Hotel'
Self-described as "if Congotronics were fronted by Morrissey," Los Angeles Afro-Global noise makers Fool's Gold collective can reach up to 16 members — all playing African inspired rhythms over contemporary pop composition. The group was formed when Luke Top and lead guitarist Lewis Pesacov, "set out to explore their shared love of various forms of African music (specifically Congolese, Ethiopan, Eritrean and Malian), Krautrock, and 80s dance influenced pop music." 'Surprise Hotel' is an ultra twangy sun-drenched jam with wild dance beat, and a fitting video. Check it out for yourself above.
