Head over to the SPIN site to download The Suzan’s cover of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It.” Not sure how they pegged our gals as “noise punks” (though they have been known to get noisy and/or punky when the spirit hits) but we wholeheartedly agree that the song is a must-hear!
More cover treats from The Suzan coming soon. Meanwhile get psyched for the release of Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat on Oct 26th!
Flashing Lights, the monthly dance party thrown by FG’s Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee, turns two this Friday (10/8) at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. FL has hosted many Fool’s Gold guests over the past two years, and this one is no exception: Nacho Lovers will be crossing the border to house up the birthday vibes, joined by fellow Torontonian Grahmzilla, who will be tag-teaming with Jubilee as part of their group, Bassanovva. The two have put together a mix of originals, remixes and other fresh tracks to get you excited for the party, including the Nacho Lovers remix of forthcoming Bassanovva single “Terrordactyl” on Sinden’s Grizzly imprint. It’s a family affair!
For more music, check all the old Flashing Lights mixes on Soundcloud.

Here’s a new treat from Telephoned maestro Sammy Bananas in the form of an undeniably funky tribute to the pied piper of R&B. This club knocker has been the highlight of SB’s sets for the past few months, so he decided to share it with the world as a freebie while he prepares new Telephoned tunes as well as his solo single “Move Your Body,” which makes its debut on the Fool’s Gold Vol. 1 compilation LP, out this fall.
