The Toronto four-piece Weaves seems poised to have a long career of pushing the boundaries while still letting audiences in. The band is fronted by singer Jasmyn Burke, whose energy you don't even have to witness live to appreciate.

Weaves' self-titled LP came out this past June. Take a listen to these two tracks, and you'll hear an art-rock quartet that might sound a little like a cross between PJ Harvey and Talking Heads.
