Fool's Gold: Leave No Trace

Fool’s Gold co-founders Lewis Pesacov and Luke Top lead this open-ended music collective which, on occasion, has grown to more than a dozen members.  The LA-based collective weaves Western pop aesthetics with African rhythms and melodies in a wholly compelling and distinctive fashion.  After two years of non-stop touring around the world with their acclaimed self-titled album, the band has evolved into a solid five-piece unit.  They are back with a new record, Leave No Trace, which features a tighter sound, adding elements of 80s New Wave and indie pop to their familiar African-influenced vibe.  More personal and nuanced, this new album declares Fool’s Gold as one of the leaders of an increasingly potent local LA scene.

-- Eric J. Lawrence, KCRW DJ and Music Librarian
