Bizarre and blistering Afro-Pop crossbred with preciseand chilly New Wave,Weave!s debut breathes newlife into the sound of groups like ESG, The Slits,The Mo-Dettes, Kleenex, The Raincoats, and Delta 5.The arty grinders have a respectable pedigree;Weave!s founders, Ivory Lee Carlson (bass, vocals)and Nicole Turley (drums, vocals), spent 2007 withpickup members from around their native Los Angeles.Weave! ultimately solidified their lineup withmembers of The Centimeters and Bubonic Plague(on guitar and keyboard) adding a rhythmic presenceto the femme-driven fervency.Theyve been playing a lot around Los Angeles lately,including well attended month-long residency at The Echo.Their Self-Titled Debut is available on CD and Clear Vinyl LP.A tambourine-ravaging set of Sonic Youth-meets-Talking Heads-tinged sounds. The local quartetdefinitely inject a sense of quirky fun into theirhypnotic, dance-y yet vicious tunes.Lina Lecaro, LA WeeklyResembles a frantic yet exuberant tug-of-ropecontest between George Clinton and David Byrne.Travis Woods, webinfront.netExtremely rhythmic and, at times, deliciously poppytheir strange mix of guitars, drums, and synthretains a haunting edge.Phil Kropoth, Flavorpill LA
