Toronto’s Buzz Records boasts an impressive roster of cutting-edge artists, including art-rock quartet Weaves. Their self-titled 2016 debut garnered nominations from both the JUNO Awards and the Polaris Music Prize, two of Canada’s most prestigious accolades. Front woman Jasmyn Burke leads the pack with zest as she and her bandmates conjure an avalanche of fuzzed-out licks. The group just dropped Wide Open, its second album in as many years. It features a guest spot from acclaimed Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq on track “Scream.” Weaves play on Thursday, October 12, at ArtsRiot in Burlington, as part of WRUV’s ongoing Rocktober series. Tancred add support.
