As winter slid away, Maymind and his bandmates - keyboardist/vocalist Amberly Hungerford, drummer/ songwriter Mike DiSanto, and multi-instrumentalist James Higgs- slowly molded these initial fragments of home recordings into layered, fluid headphone symphonies that emphasized the raw randomness in electronic sound. Some songs, like "Los Angeles Guitar Dream" and "Cadillac from Yesterday" pair male and female vocals in a tremolo-haze of guitars and steady coupling of acoustic and electronic drums. Others, such as "Know No Violence" and "Lipstick Under the Table," evolved with swirling and decaying layers, reacting against the rigid by placing the inimitable sound of the human voice - or multiple voices, either together or in turns, at the center of focus.
Though the songs on the album take twists and turns, follow detours and back alleys, get lost and return suddenly, the album remains a captivating listen-a soundtrack to this directionless fishbowl of thick superficial infinite. Gold Fools is a journey into a world of hypnotic, kaleidoscopic dream pop that you didn't know you needed to take. Now, the path is clear.
