Pyrite (Fool’s Gold)

September 29, 2009

Fool's Gold

So I made the blitz down to Amoeba on Sunset after work to try and catch Fool’s Gold performing live at their pseudo-album release party at 7pm. Well, I got slammed at work and the car gods did not shine upon me, so I ended up arriving at 8 to watch them pack up their gear and hear people tell them how awesome their performance was. Wah Wah Waaaa. I did end up scoring one of the last few CDs on shelf, though.

Their music is going to catch some flack for having a sound that is akin to Vampire Weekend, but the Hebrew lyrics and heavy afro-jazz melodies really separate the two as the album progresses. BTW, despite the super international sound and composition of the band, all of the current 10-12 rotating members reside in LA, which is awesome! Los Angeles’s music scene looks like its building some serious momentum. Woo!
