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.

LISTEN UP // Justin Vernon Releases New Album Under The Shouting Matches Moniker

Good afternoon! Justin Vernon has teamed up with Phil Cook and Peter Wolf Crier’s Brian Moen for a new project called The Shouting Matches. NPR is streaming the group’s debut album in full; head HERE to stream Grownass Man. The album is officially out tomorrow!

“It’s the work of a guy who loves playing music — who’s drawn influence from Talk Talk and Bruce Hornsby and many points in between — and saw an opportunity to have a blast on the side with friends he’s joined on stage whenever possible.”Stephen Thompson

You can see The Shouting Matches live at Coachella this weekend, as well as next!
