WEAVES – ” Weaves “

Having only released one EP and playing live as a band for little over a year, Weaves have quickly become an internationally buzzed about band. They were recently chosen as Rolling Stone’s “Band To Watch”, and have shared the stage with Constantines, Tune-Yards and Austra, playing such venues as Massey Hall and The Phoenix. Having been tagged as pop eclectics, seductive art-rockers and musicians with a delirious swirl, Weaves make bent-out-of-shape pop music that’s catchy and unpredictable. Their critically acclaimed debut EP was produced by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals) and Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Fucked Up).


Formed by lead singer Jasmyn Burke and guitarist Morgan Waters, Weaves is a violent collision of soul, punk and pop. The tension between Burke’s affinity for topsy-turvy tunes and Waters’ ear for buoyant pop hooks makes for music that revels in fun, arty, noisy weirdness yet still maintain a level of accessibility. With the addition of a virtuosic rhythm section made up of Spencer Cole and Zach Bines, and you’ve got a band that’s slick yet slimy, backwards yet forward thinking, perhaps on the tip of collapsing.

Releases  to date




Dilly Dally may be Toronto’s new purveyor’s of late-80’s alterna-worship, but while Katie Monks can yowl like both Frank Black and Kim Deal, some of their best hooks are found in lead guitarist Liz Ball’s Santiago-esque melodies. A shining example is “Candy Mountain,” an anthem of social alienation in which sparse verses dive headfirst into choruses soaked in fuzz. If its title is any indication, think less “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” and more Psychocandy.
