As you may have seen on Pitchfork today, our first-ever compilation LP, Fool’s Gold Vol 1 is making its way to you fine people of planet Earth on October 25th (same day as The Suzan LP – they both got bumped to Monday cause of Taylor Swift. Good looking out ma!)
The 14 new tracks on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 are a 3-D look at where FG has been and where we’re going next. “Ray Ban Vision,” A-Trak’s robot-rocking collab with G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce, sits comfortably next to Treasure Fingers’ joyous dance pop throwback “Keep Up” and The Suzan’s rollicking cover of Miike Snow’s “Animal,” along with new tracks from other exciting, constantly-evolving talents like Kingdom, Flosstradamus, and even Lil B, who teases his forthcoming EP with the #based bass of “Freeze.”
You will be able to download Vol 1 from all fine music retailers, as well as purchase a limited-edition CD copy (and other FG treats) at Opening Ceremony boutiques worldwide. We are immensely proud to share these new tracks from our family with all of you!
Check the full tracklisting after the jump and stay tuned. Read More
Check out The Suzan performing “Nice Codes,” a moody track from their Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat LP live in Tokyo. As a bonus beat after the jump, you can watch them rocking “Ha Ha Ha” taped early in the day at the Fool’s Gold Day Off party. Read More
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!
Check out The Suzan in the latest issue of YRB, on stands and online now. Our lovely ladies also made Paper’s Top 10 Girl Groups To Watch alongside Warpaint and our BK neighbors Frankie Rose and the Outs.
The Suzan’s new album Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat is out October 26th, and we will be dropping goodies all month long to get you psyched for its release. Stay tuned! “Home” is out now on digital single and limited 7″ colored vinyl, and you can preview it on RCRD LBL.
As you saw in the video for “Barbra Streisand,” our inaugural Day Off party on Labor Day in NYC was beyond crazy. Guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, the Slow Roast crew (Craze, Klever & Kill The Noise) and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan…the whole fam put it down!
Thanks to the crew at City Winery and all our production / promotion partners Scion, Jelly NYC, The FADER, LTD+, and Bushmills, all the FG soopa interns, and a giant Mr Goldbar bear hug to FG homegirl Dnyce for all her help behind the scenes. We’ll be back with more parties very soon! After the jump, some of our favorite Day Off moments. Read More
Check The Suzan performing “London Tonight” live at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn on September 5th. “London” is one of 13 new tracks on their debut Fool’s Gold LP, Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat out October 26th (single “Home” is out now, but y’all know that already). Get hyped!
Our girls The Suzan are headed back to Japan and won’t return until it gets closer to the release of Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat on October 26th. However, you have one last chance to check them live this Saturday (9/11) at Rock Shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn, playing alongside Robbers On High Street and more. Go go go!
Putting a giant exclamation point on another summer of smash singles and packed-out parties across the country, Fool’s Gold – the trendsetting indie label founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs – is throwing a free DAY OFF party on Labor Day. It’s going down from 2-8pm in NYC at City Winery Backyard (155 Varick St, backyard entrance on Spring between Hudson & Varick) and the all-ages event will feature guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, Craze, Klever, Kill The Noise and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan. It’s truly a family affair, with their friends from Scion, The Fader, LTD+, Slow Roast, Jelly and more on board to make it a can’t-miss party! Read More
Thanks to everyone who braved the elements with us last Sunday for “Pool’s Gold” at the Jelly Pool Party, and came out soggy-but-smiling on the other end after rocking with Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned.
