More From FYF: Talking Tacos With Fool's Gold and Memories of L.A. With Future Islands

We caught up with Fool's Gold after their midday set at FYF Fest last Saturday. Luke Top explained why you might have an easier time understanding the lyrics on the band's new album "Leave No Trace" (he sang in Hebrew on the first album). We debated best taco stops on the East Side and why Elysian Park is a nice place to get lost.

Future Islands talks about their early tours through L.A. -- rocking Pehrspace, getting sloshed in the van behind The Smell and more. If their performance at FYF Fest is any indication, Future Islands is bound for bigger stages on the heels of their upcoming third release, "On the Water."
