Yours truly was still very enthusiastic about the debut of Californian Fool's Gold, but their alternately Hebrew and English mix of African music, krautrock and 1980s pop and dance, seems to have all but disappeared on 'Leave No Trace'. Fool's Gold still sounds like Fool's Gold, especially thanks to their unmistakable guitar sound, but the use of Hebrew was completely pushed into the background in favor of English and the African influences that were present on their debut are nowhere to be found on 'Leave No Trace'. Fool's Gold seems to have opted for the world of pop and rock instead of that of world music. Make no mistake 'Leave No Trace' is still an infectious album, but where world music influences are concerned the album title can definitely be taken literally (with the exception of 'Tel Aviv', as far as we're concerned the album's super tip)!
