Album Stream: Peter Wolf Crier - Garden of Arms

August 30, 2011  |  8:30am

For a group that released its first album last year, Peter Wolf Crier’s newest release sounds pretty complete. From start to finish, Garden of Arms is a cohesive piece that stands in dark contrast to the group’s 2010 debut. Garden of Arms is the band’s response to an exhausting 2010, which included playing a hundred shows over six months.

But it seems like all of the work has given the duo of Peter Pisano and Brian Moen a different, more patient perspective on the music they create. The band takes full advantage of the studio with layered, processed instruments on “Settling It Off” and “Beach,” which set the stage for vocalist Peter Pisano’s unrestrained, focused melodies.

Garden of Arms is available on Sept. 6 through Jagjaguwar. The band’s tour dates are listed below.
