Hooded Fang 

Hooded Fang Album (independent)

Hooded Fang Album is a slice of hipster heaven from the Toronto-based seven-piece collective Hooded Fang, led by Daniel Lee, and its laundry list of guest players. While the band is very capable of hitting the studio and cranking out an album, which comes loaded with praise from some trusted critics, it just fails to reach out and grab. As an entire work it feels shallow and over-indulgent: it dissipates the moment the stop button is pressed. There are moments where you can hear shades of Vampire Weekend and The National, but never once can you hear the soul of Hooded Fang and that’s a shame.
