Hooded Fang are one the few new bands I’ve come across this year that really made me sit up and listen. Their second album, Tosta Mista, echoes with jangley 1960′s guitars, and the watery surf sound of that era and the vocals with a sleepy sense of optimism seem to ride the breeze and pace of the songs. But amongst this sense of 60′s garage nostalgia, they’ve got something fresh and contemporary going on too.
