Ryn Weaver’s sweetly powerful voice soars through what seems like hundreds of layers of intricate production on“OctaHate,” (I'm pretty sure I heard the distinctive sound of the popping of some Hubba Bubba in there). The track is her earth-shakingly brilliant debut single, but not her first song. She's worked alongside a few notable producers, namely Cashmere Cat (who played a sold out show at this years Sled Island festival) where she appeared as “Aryn” on his house heavy track “With Me” last fall. She also did an awesome, haunting cover of Joanna Newsom’s song “Peach, Plum, Pear” last year, posting it to Soundcloud under the handle FemFemFem and sounding distinctly Lana Del Ray-ish. However, OctoHate is by far her best release to date, and if its any indication of where this mysterious twenty something is heading, there are big things ahead for Ryn, or whatever she wants to call herself. I'll listen regardless. -C
