PETER WOLF CRIER

It is not so much a sound as a spirit. You don't need to name it to know it or to trust it. Peter Wolf Crier's second album Garden of Arms is a document that paints a vivid portrait of all the pain and beauty of growth. Written with the at-home repose demanded by performing a hundred shows in six months, these eleven tracks were nurtured from their hushed origins with a new-found footing of confidence and experimentation. Adapting the tenets of the grinding live show, the duo of Peter Pisano and Brian Moen transformed the fuzzy distortion, rolling and crashing drums, and laser-focused purposefulness into an intensely dynamic yet supremely polished album.

Sean Carey has been mighty busy touring every which way with Bon Iver, but he’s taking a pause to play a set at this year’s FRZN Fest in Madison, WI. Peter Wolf Crier will also be playing the festival, coming off the heels of some heavy touring toward the end of 2011 and the release of their last album, Garden of Arms. Catch both of these wonderful artists and more at the festival on Sat, Jan 14. They’ll be playing at 8pm at the High Noon Saloon (701 E. Washington Ave. Madison, WI). The show is only $12 (or $15-20 if you want to stick around for both nights of the festival).

Peter Wolf Crier Premiere “Settling It Off” Remix

Peter Wolf Crier have released a remix of their single “Settling It Off” today. The track features Minneapolis PWC compatriots Joe Horton of No Bird Sing, Kristoff Krane, and Alexei Casselle aka MC Crescent Moon of Kill the Vultures. The four friends met when they were introduced by Mikey Larsen of Eyedea & Abilities, who passed away last year. Peter Pisano says of the track, “Can you hear it when you listen to the remix? You know how it sounds like their verses live in three tenses at once: Grandpa’s earest wisdom, Brother’s beautiful skill, and Mom and Dad’s upright courage? This is what it felt like to drink with Mike.” You can check out the remix here or over at Welikeit.indie

The band is also gearing up for a run of West Coast dates with Birds + Batteries as well as Sondre Lerche later in the month. A full list of shows is here.
