June 10, 2016 by BOB BOILEN • There's something nearly unhinged about Weaves' music. Some of that is in the frenetic guitar of Morgan Waters and the way it contrasts with the swaying-in-the-breeze feel of singer Jasmyn Burke. But then it can all turn upside-down in a hurry — the guitar becomes almost lyrical as Burke sings:

A portion of popcorn that's popping and shopping for fresh hands
Distortion is motion that's ridden forbidden
Don't you dare, don't you dare
You're so coo coo I'm so coo coo

All the while, the rhythm section jitters and shakes, or you may find Burke flat on the floor, singing toward the ceiling.

A Toronto-based art and pop project, Weaves is a young band with just one EP and a debut album coming June 17. That album has already become a favorite of mine: The group has an eagerness to try on new sounds while always remaining playful and quirky — sometimes loud, sometimes gentle and always a trip.
