Hands & Teeth
Enjoy Your Lifestyle
By Jessica Lewis

The appeal of Hands & Teeth is pretty easy to discern. Combine boy-girl call-and-response melodies with tender hooks and an easy-going overall sense and you’ve got an enjoyable album. With five members who all previously headed five other bands, the compromise is palpable. But what they’ve worked out together shows off their hard work and ability to knuckle down in song. In five numbers, there’s sweetness and strength, from driving guitars and speedy keyboards to claps and hard drumming. With five lively musicians, producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep) and guest vocals by Broken Social Scene’s Lisa Lobsinger, Enjoy Your Lifestyle is fashioned into a motto to live by. With an essence like Fox Jaws, hinting at mysterious territory, these Toronto, ON upstarts will find their path. (Independent)
