[SOTD] Fool’s Gold – “Surprise Hotel”

09/15/2011

Fool’s Gold is a breath or fresh air in the world of electronic music. The Los Angeles based group blends Sub-Saharan African music and 80s dance pop to create a uniquely fresh, African-American sound that maintains the grittiness of Los Angeles. I can just imagine the enhancement (along with some Bay Area bud) some live Fool’s Gold would bring to a day on Venice Beach or relaxing at an outdoor lounge on Sunset Blvd. One of the good unpretentious, warm LA weather and architecture without the LA attitude, one. Yes, they exist, I swear I am not making this up.

The self-titled debut album has caught on in the music world and been sampled and remixed by other artists, notably, James Pants and Phaseone.
