As far as music video concepts go, the setup for Holy Ghost!’s new single “Wait And See” is a real winner. The clip follows Nick and Alex through a day in a life of a young n happening Brooklyn disco band on the make – studio, parties, girls, record shopping, pizza – except the guys are played by their actual fathers. Every detail is spot on and perfect, down to the guys’ personal wardrobes, including the Fool’s Gold tee pictured above. Cinema!
When he’s not editing Food Gold, our friend Elliot Aronow gets busy masterminding his television-not-television program Our Show right here in good ole NYC. Check these two brand-new OS clips: a surreal segment featuring Nancy Whang and Holy Ghost! (above) and Q&A craziness with Das Racist (after the jump). Read More
Two independent record labels, united under a groove…
Last month we teamed up with our friends from Stones Throw, laced up our dancing shoes and hit the road for the DISCOTHEQUE extravaganza! Four nights of “disco, boogie and house music” (as the hand-drawn flyer advertised) from Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, J-Rocc and Nacho Lovers, along with special guests Mayer Hawthorne, Treasure Fingers and Holy Ghost!

Chicago get ready! Full info and lineups for tonight and the other dates are up at foolsgoldrecs.com/discotheque. Peep the limited-edition Dust La Rock tour shirt (we might throw a couple up on the webstore if you’re lucky…)
This year during Coachella, we got together with our friends from Stones Throw for one fine evening of “disco, boogie and house music” (as the hand-drawn flyer advertised) from Peanut Butter Wolf, The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Mayer Hawthorne, Jokers Of The Scene, James Pants, and Chris Bag Raiders. Aloe Blacc was on mic duties throughout the evening, and, as you can see from the video highlight reel, a groovy time was had by all!
The night went so well, in fact, that we decided to base a whole tour around it: the Stones Throw x Fool’s Gold Discotheque, featuring Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, J Rocc and Nacho Lovers (alongside DJ sets from some very special guests: Treasure Fingers, Holy Ghost!, Mayer Hawthorne and more) kicking off in Chicago with a Lollapalooza afterparty on August 6th and then traveling to San Francisco, Portland, and wrapping up with a very special boat party in Vancouver.
