Peter Wolf Crier Signs To Jagjaguwar


Jagjaguwar is proud to announce the signing of Peter Wolf Crier. Stay tuned for the  release of their album Inter-Be on May 25 in the U.S. and June 7 in the U.K.

Inter-Be is the debut album by PETER WOLF CRIER, the Minneapolis-based duo of Peter Pisano and Brian Moen. The album was born on a single summer night when Pisano felt a torrent of creativity after what had felt, to him, like an interminably long dry spell. He shared the songs with Moen, and over the months that followed, at Moen’s home, these rough-hewed tunes became what they are now: a confident collection of songs, but deceptive in that their very guts still reflect the thoughts of a man in transition.

ONEIDA Rides Again With New Record, Upcoming Triptych In Tow

ONEIDA rides again, and they roll in threes. The venerable Brooklyn trio has returned this summer with news of a magnific undertaking, a triptych of albums loosely referred to as the “Thank Your Parents” project. The first volume, entitled “Preteen Weaponry”, will drop August 5 on Jagjaguwar Records. You can consider it an introduction to their forthcoming triple album “Rated O”, which is part two of the aforementioned series (to be released by Jagjaguwar in early 2009).

“Preteen Weaponry” has three parts and is meant to be listened to at once (in order). It is almost entirely instrumental. Each part was recorded at different times and in different states of mind, but all on the same day. “Preteen Weaponry,” along with the second and third chapters of “Thank Your Parents,” was recorded by the band with the aid of longtime collaborator Barry London at their new Brooklyn studio, The Ocropolis.

Clocking in at just a hair under 40 minutes, “Preteen Weaponry” is larger than life, ably navigating the undulating waters of repetition and dynamic flux, while simultaneously channeling trancelike and propulsive energy. There’s no need to seek an altered state before dropping the needle, as the record itself is likely to induce it.

Here’s a tasty sample portion, chosen by the band.

Oneida have also translated “Preteen Weaponry” into a perversely hypnotic live show. You have most of the summer to take deep breaths and ready yourselves.
