Cayucas – “Will The Thrill (Luke Top Of Fool’s Gold Tropmix)” (Stereogum Premiere)
Earlier this year, Cayucas, otherwise known as Californian indie-popper Zach Yudin, released his debut album Bigfoot, which luxuriated in some of the same sunny Afropop-guitar vibes that helped get Vampire Weekend all that attention early on. And now Luke Top, a member of the great Californian Afropop-pastiche band Fool’s Gold, has remixed the album track “Will The Thrill,” giving it a reworking that draws as much from ’80s synthpop as it does from, say, ’80s Youssou N’Dour. Listen to it below.
Bigfoot is out now on Secretly Canadian.
