By Richard Wink May 20, 2013 An unlikely early contender for album of 2013, this review will be more a plea attempting to convince you to give it a listen then anything else. When Toronto’s Hooded Fang released Tosta Mista it was weighed down slightly by some unnecessary filler, but it did carry some pointed clues to the future, a whiff of psychobilly, sixties surf and dumb psychedelia. The chuntering wall of bass, and garage rock simplicity of ‘Graves’ gets us off the ground, [...]
Denis Nazarov Though at least some of his current profile comes from being associated with the same Montreal scene that produced Grimes, those expecting more electro-pop cotton candy from Devon Welsh of Majical Cloudz had best adjust their expectations. His full-length debut Impersonator is electronic, yes, but is also spare, haunting, and unflinchingly emotional, circling heavy lyrical topics like death and desire. One would expect that at the Matador company picnic, he'll be keeping more company with Mike Hadreas of Perfume Genius than, say, Belle & Sebastian's Stuart [...]
Gravez, il nuovo album degli Hooded Fang , uscirà tra due settimane per Full Time Hobby - dopo la quasi title track Graves , vi anticipiamo qui un altro brano, segnalando anche che lo stream completo del disco è disponibile per questa settimana su Hype Machine :
Hooded Fang From: Toronto, Canada Ode to Subterrania from Canadian garaginistas Hooded Fang sounds like The Divine Comedy on dexedrine. One listen and your life before seems somehow empty and pointless. Once inside your head it'll never leave even when the bailiffs come knocking. You need this in your life. [...]
On "Ode To Subterrania," Hooded Fang unleashes the pleasure of jamming in a basement where you can rip as loudly as possible and flail around because no one is watching. Its driving rhythms encourage lots of bopping and its punkish new-wave turnarounds will please the garage rock freaks.
It was a great show today on Photogmusic Live . I had in the studio Claudia Gutierrez of Ottawa School of Art to talk about J'Adart taking place on May 9th at Karsh-Masson Gallery (136 St. Patrick Street) The interview is in the 30 minute mark.

When RayRay brought you the first single from Hooded Fang a few weeks back, it was more like a straight rocker, something we could all enjoy immediately. But the second single from the group is demonstrating some range from the band, which should definitely benefit their album Gravez. This tune has more like a propulsive piece of art-pop, though it's rounded out by some tight-knit guitar work in the background. It's much more explorative of a track then I expected, which leads me to believe that their record will [...]

Toronto's Hooded Fang are onto a winner. Following their 2012 LP 'Tosta Mista', they've stuck with Full Time Hobby for the release of their latest album 'Gravez', which by all means warrants the extra, zesty misspelling in its title. 'Gravez' prompts a jolt in routine, a physical burst of energy in its listener. And that's no more evident than in 'Ode To Subterrania', a proverbial tie-dye spillage of psych-infused colours, circuiting the heady experimental quality of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and surging out towards the lunacy of Tame Impala at their [...]

Toronto four-piece Hooded Fang have been hard at work on Gravez , their follow up to last year's Tosta Mista LP and "Ode To Subterrania" will be the next track to come from it. continue reading >>
Nick Bostick That Arcade Fire will release a new record this year - possibly/probably produced by or at least involving James Murphy - is pretty much a given. But also a given is that it won't be out until Fall, at the earliest, because a) it's already Spring and it's not done, and b) Fall is still when all the big records come out and this is about as big as they get. It would be nice to be able to say that Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Neufeld will be able [...]
Hooded Fang have unveiled a new piece of post-punk psychedelia and teaser to their forthcoming record, Gravez , due later this month. With its relentless, crunching bass line, languid vocal and tie-die infused guitar hook, 'Ode to Subterrania' is covered in a colourful, vintage hue. It feels like a trippy soundtrack that matches its album cover completely, and there is something wonderfully moreish about the whole package. Take the restless, heady journey with this latest offering from the Toronto quartet below.
Toronto-based indie-pop outfit Hooded Fang announce their third full-length release, entitled Gravez. The album will be released in the US May 28th on UK label Full Time Hobby. Daps Records will release in...
by Tiana Feng Hooded Fang revealed another track from Gravez today called "Old to Subterrania". It sounds a bit more psychedelic than usual, growing up from their signature pop sound in Album .
Canada's Hooded Fang are gearing up to release a new LP, Gravez , later this month and give a preview of what's to come with "Ode To Subterrania." It's a sublime cut that mixes garage, post-punk, and Brazil's 1960s movement Tropicalia with a modern, synth-y twist. Check out the track and their upcoming tour dates below. Read More...
Along with our favorite album cover of the year so far, Canada's Hooded Fang have unleashed a trippy, kaleidoscopic new track from their latest LP, Gravez. The song, "Ode to Subterrania", is equal parts bizarro-world funhouse and excellent, propeller-driven foottapper. There are elements of early psychedelia as well as very convincing and structured wackiness, and it's a joy to see a band with touches of garage-rock to play around with effects and colorful sonic tapestries. Hoo...
