Fool’s Gold – “Another Sun”
In September of last year L.A. world-pop outfit Fool’s Gold released “I’m In Love,” the first single off their third album Flying Lessons. Now, just about eight months later we’ll finally be getting that album, and in the meantime they’ve put out another song, “Another Sun.” The collective draws on amorphous sounds and is heavily inspired by Ethiopian and Congolese music. Their lineup is just as fluid as their sound and at one point ballooned to 15 people, but they’ve whittled it down to five solid members for this album. Original founding members Luke Top (vocals/bass) and Lewis Pesacov (guitar) are now joined by Garrett Ray and Salvador Placencia on percussion and saxophonist Brad Caulkins. “Another Sun” picks up the same woozy grooves and bright, gushy ebullience as their earlier work, and pushes it farther into dream pop territory. All that organ simmering underneath works like a slow burn, turning up the heat on the rest of the song. Listen below.
