Download Fool’s Gold Live Studio Session From Seattle’s KEXP

You may remember these guys from the Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros show late last year.  This wickedly fun Afropop indie band recently recorded a live studio session for Seattle’s KEXP for your listening pleasure.  Take a listen here, and check out their sun-soaked video for “Surprise Hotel” below.
