Folk / Rock / Psyché

Hooded Fang have been been a force in Canadian music and beyond for the last few years. To their enormous credit, they continue to blast their sound to smithereens before picking up the the most jagged pieces and moving forth. Where once in their career lead songwriter Daniel Lee would have used lush instrumentation or thick harmony to evoke urgency, Venus on Edge gives us Ritalin tempos and sheet metal guitars, nagging us until there’s no choice but to give them what they want, surrender. The combination of Lee’s vocals, Lane Halley’s manic riffs, April Aliermo’s hypnotic basslines and D.Alex Meeks’ spastic rhythms leave the listener confronted with the questions, “Is this too much for you? Can you take it?” Hooded Fang have done what a great rock’n’roll band does and become more dangerous sounding with each year and each release. Watch out for Hooded Fang’s upcoming release, DYNASTY HOUSE.

Pop / R&B / Psychedelic

"This one's really mellow," explains Danny Cmon. "It's just for the atmosphere, like soft furniture. I grew up on big comfy couches, sunk low, plush and blue. Love seats that you can take apart and put in different formations. That's my whole music style. Easygoing, but adaptable. Did you pour a Danny?" Only a member of a band whose eponymous album features a song named after themselves would offer me a drink that he named after himself. "It's just gin and grapefruit juice," he adds, expecting me not to notice the hints of ginger syrup and paprika foam notes. And that is the trick of the Breezes: alcohol in general.
