LISTEN: Fool's Gold – I'm In Love


The L.A.-based five piece band FOOL'S GOLD just released their third album Flying Lessons (ORG Music, 2015).

Founders Luke Top and Lewis Pesacov, both native Israelis who emigrated to America at an early age, created this musical project where converges members that played in Foreign Born, The Fall or We Are Scientists, and sounds like African-influenced Western pop with a hint of soul and a bit of electro-ness.


As lead singer and co-funder Luke Top says, "The release of Flying Lessons is a huge deal for us. It encompasses everything we've been about for the last 7 years, both musically and emotionally. It is the culmination of countless hours of travel, gigs, success, failure, darkness, joy, and the stubborn insistence to move forward and create our best work to date".

Listen to Flying Lessons' opening track and first single "I'm In Love" below.



Remember the very first single of the band, "Surprise Hotel" from self-titled debut album (IMSOUND Records, 2009) and let's pretend it's summer!

RETRO: Michel Legrand – Theme & Variations For Two Pianos & Orchestra (From The Go-Between)



The great Michel Legrand composed the soundtrack for British romantic drama Le Messeger (aka The Go-Between) from 1970, the 1971 Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or winner starring Julie Christie and Alan Bates.

This track is a variation of the main theme from the film score and it's not only ridiculously good but also sounds like a perfect crime lounge track. Pure gem.



* Included in Rare & Bizarre Vol. 5
