Certainly not pyrite, Fool’s Gold put on a 24 karat performance at KFN as the September 20th headliner. This Los Angeles collective was formed in 2007 around the talents of Luke Top (vocalist and bassist) and Lewis Pesacov (lead guitarist) to explore musical genres such as Congolese, Ethiopian, Eritrean and Malian Rock music. The remaining influences are Krautrock, Hebrew, and 80′s influenced pop music, combining to create a glorious collection of sounds that comes through in live performances and recordings. Those concerned about being lost in the translation need not worry as the influences are worked effortlessly into music most anyone could enjoy.
Playing songs from their 2009 and 2011 LP’s, Fool’s Gold was a top notch act to catch having played on such hollowed grounds as The Hollywood Bowl, The Summerstage in Central Park NYC and The Black Sessions in Paris as well as having played events such as Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Oya, Austin City Limits Music Festival and London Calling Fest (Amsterdam).
