Thought you didn’t have room for another lo-fi, Black Lips-aping garage-fuzz band? Think again. Canadian collective Hooded Fang are well worth your time. Their debut is a concise 23 minutes – long enough to get into its groovy, ’60s pop twang and surf riffs without risk of boredom setting in. And entertaining lyrics like, ‘When you take off your clothes you can still act like an icy h*’ (‘Clap’) impress when you discover frontman Daniel Lee penned the LP in a month, after his break-up from bassist April Aliermo. It’s spry, honest and packed with emotion, but most of all, it’s fun.
