"Peter Wolf Crier is Peter Pisano and Brian Moen, a Minneapolis-based basement folk duo bred in Wisconsin. Both players have made marks on the Eau Claire scene that fostered Bon Iver's success" - PITCHFORK
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.
Tiny Ruins is the project of Bristol-born, New Zealand-raised musician and songwriter Hollie Fullbrook, whose live shows began to attract attention for soul-stirring, intimate performances and strange, hypnotic songs and led to her signing with Australia's Spunk Records.
The first Tiny Ruins album, 'Some Were Meant For Sea' was recorded by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby) and championed by BBC 6Music and Radio 2. It was hailed on the BBC World Service as one of the top five albums of 2011. Tiny Ruins has opened for bands such as Beach House, Joanna Newsom, Fleet Foxes, Holly Throsby and Olof Arnalds.
"A debut album of vast beauty... everybody should have one" - Tom Ravenscroft, BBC 6 Music
"An absolutely gorgeous album" - Bob Harris - BBC Radio 2
"If one of your fantasies involves early Cat Power singing with Low... a simmering mix of blues and rock, hypnotically paced as delicate and tough as a willow sapling." - AMERICANA UK
