Astutely crafted world-influenced pop,
This review is from: Fool's Gold (Audio CD)
As unconcerned with geographical legitimacy as Vampire Weekend, but far more faithful to source material, Fool's Gold's energised debut traverses Kingston, Istanbul and Rio before settling somewhere between Fela Kuti's Africa 70 and the house band on a week's cruise down the Nile. Despite the scattered approach, the musical voyage seldom hits rocky waters, and the surf-tastic guitar tones provide breezily welcome reminders of home at regular intervals - sublime.
