A giant collective as much as a band, the California lovers in Fool's Gold, are a slightly unwieldy crew of folks who know how to wing a riff into the wild abyss. Or as Matt and Sal of the band say, they get into "pockets of ecstasy" when playing with 12 people on stage. To try to break down the enigma, the members of Fool's Gold and Tehetena Yonas made FADER TV a little gift: Five bios about the band and its members. In the first two of five videos we meet members Sal, Matt, Erika and Michael, who explain the band's magic, demonstrate it on thumb piano and get some ice cream. Come back tomorrow to meet the rest of the band.
