With the standard mix of instruments plus a keyboard, April Aliermo, Daniel Lee, Lane Halley, and D. Alex Meeks come out of Canada as Hooded Fang
to play solid indie pop rock. Touring to support their latest release, "Gravez", these vivacious Canadian's continue in the lo-fi pop groove started with previous album "Tosta Mista," a festive trick of the light, through a gray glow. Hooded Fang returns to make unlikely combinations of tropical grooves mixing a funky rhythm, pop inflections, sixties slacker rock and post-punk agitation. Interspersed with familiar sounds, but twisted in a fun way, Fang condenses the beach, sunburn, and collecting garlands and empty glasses, because the party does not come without a hangover.
