I spent the whole day at XXXChange’s crib working on a new track for the Kid Sister album, which is coming out crazy. When we finally left we got in the car and I heard this joint on the radio that sounded like Alex’s bassline from “Backyard Betty” with a Cool Kids-ish hook and a rapper that sounded like Young Chris. It’s the new Bathgate song, “Pockets Full Of Money”. I like!

Woah internet! The recent vintage clips from Coachella keep on stumbling into our lives. Go check out these Q&As with Treasure Fingers, Flosstradamus and XXXChange (not to mention Bonde Do Role, Holy Ghost and Cut Copy) at the Boosted blog, filmed during our pool party a few weeks back. It was the best of times, it was the
blurst sunburntest of times…

As Busy P’s expertly Photoshopped show flyer should have told you, this past weekend of jams at the Coachella festival was a veritable FG family reunion. Brothers! Sisters! French cousins! But we’re back now (sunburnt, caffeinated, blogging) and the fruits of our festival self-Googling are yours after the jump. More added as we find ’em. Read More

Friends united! Fool’s Gold’s own Treasure Fingers will be rocking with our pals from Fully Fitted, XXXChange and Devlin & Darko, tonight at Hiro Ballroom in NYC (which we TORE DOWN last week on the Screaming Bloody Murder tour, pics and video up soon…) It’s free with RSVP and there’s some kind of open bar dealy so basically you’re the buster of the year if you miss it to stay home and watch Law and Order or some such.
