« Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes discussed City Gardens on 'The Daily Show' (watch), playing Paul Simon tribute next week | Tigers Jaw releasing a new LP, touring w/ Pity Sex, Petal and Loose Planes (dates & streams) »

Toronto band Weaves, who were last in NYC back during CMJ, will release their debut EP next week (4/1) via Buzz Records. The band blend somewhat disparate elements -- big rock riffs, liquid bass, ethereal harmonies -- into a danceable, eclectic sound, led by Jasmyn Burke's distinctive, emotive vocals. It's catchy, off-kilter stuff, and we're premiering a stream of the full EP. Check that out, along with the new video for "Buttercup," below.
Weaves have a few Canadian dates lined up and will dip below the border to visit NYC for two shows: April 18 at Baby's All Right with Win Win and headliners Prince Rama (tickets), and April 19 at Shea Stadium with Slothrust and Video Daughters.
All dates are listed, along with the EP stream and "Buttercup" video, below...
