Weaves entertain intimate audience with ambience and weirdness

E-mail Print PDF

Considering the impression they made at CKXU’s Love and Records festival in September, I expected Weaves’ show at the Geomatic Attic to be packed, Tuesday, May 8.

It was not. approximately 40 people sat at tables set up at the back of the room and in a couple rows of people seated in front of the dimly lit stage.  They had several familiar faces from CKXU in the audience as well as a handful of Geomatic Attic  regulars.The Toronto based quartet Weaves played a solid set of psychedelic pop and indie rock which got weird really fast.

 Lead singer Jasmyn Burke’s high, adenoidal voice sounded like  mix of Poly Strene, vocalist of ’70s British punk band X Ray Spex and ’90s one hit wonders Aqua, who charted with “Barbie Girl.” back in 1997.
The guitarist did his best Jimi Hendrix impersonation , playing his guitar with his teeth.

They alternated between tightly crafted pop to weirder, more experimental almost  jazzy jams.

A discussion about visiting the country music hall of fame museum in Nashville and seeing E one of Elvis‘s gold painted cars, inspired them to play a few bars of  of Shania Twain’s “Man, I Feel like A Woman,” but cut it short as Burke giggled she didn’t know the words.
The second set was even more experimental.
