Peter Wolf Crier

Minnesotans Peter Pisano and Brian Moen, better known collectively as Peter Wolf Crier, just released their debut full length Inter-Be earlier this week, a collection of plucky indie folk-rock tunes harboring the smudged edge of home-recording. Indeed, the album was recorded in Moen's house, with various spur-of-the-moments attributing to the final sound. "The only reason there would up being piano on the album," Pisano told the Star Tribune, "was because Brian went out and bought one a week before we recorded."

Peter Wolf Crier is set to go on tour around the US this summer with Freelance Whales and the Heartless Bastards, but they have to wait until school gets out - Pisano is currently a teacher of science and photography for K-8th graders. Whether or not he returns to teach in the fall is yet to be determined, but given the praise and attention that Inter-Be has been getting as of late, I wouldn't be surprised if he trades his classroom for a stage.
