Weaves' debut self-titled EP will be out this April on Buzz Records. David Newfeld produced "Buttercup," and it sounds like the Valentine from the weird-but-cute kid you rejected in Grade 8, grown up and totally banging but still strange in the way you totally dig now. All the yelling that never escaped your timid throat, Jasmyn Burke releases with the gusto of a shower session but the range of something far fancier and more public. Next to her, the song stretches itself taut against layer upon layer of unrestrained experimentation: sludgy bass lines, Morgan Waters' freaky guitar licks, a midsong drop-out. No wonder it's opening the EP - it's an instantly convincing rallying cry for a promising new band.
