Minneapolis duo Peter Wolf Crier didn’t quite have a handle on what it was channeling in its debut album Inter-Be, and rightly so. It’s an album birthed in the middle of the night, and it sounds like one: Guitarist-vocalist Peter Pisano of The Wars Of 1812 and drummer Brian Moen of Laarks frame what Pisano refers to as “the ashes of a memoir” with eerily stacked harmony howls, crackling percussion, and guttural guitar work. Inter-Be’s simultaneously ethereal and rugged home-recorded sound drew legions of comparisons to For Emma, Forever Ago—particularly since Moen has collaborated with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon—but they grew with the new follow-up, Garden Of Arms, with more pronounced sonic experiments brought to the forefront.
