Fool's Gold is a large collective of musicians based in Los Angeles, with a shared love of exuberant Afropop. The band's self-titled debut is an incredibly infectious, joyful collection of songs with lots of sonic surprises. Though the group's sound is African based, the lyrics are often in Hebrew. Luke Top, one of the band's two frontmen, was born in Israel. On this edition of All Songs Considered we feature a cut from the new Fool's Gold record. Also on the program: new music from Built To Spill, rapper Lil B's plan to release a thousand songs before he's 21 years old, a classic reissued by The Feelies, The Mountain Goats, and the ethereal, ambient rock of Apse.
