Peter Wolf Crier 

Eighties sleaze rockers remember Peter Wolf as the lead singer of the J. Geils Band--the fey lad singing "My blood runs cold / My memory has just been sold / My angel is the centerfold," while prancing on school desks in the hit '80s jam "Centerfold." Others still think of Austin, Texas, psych folkster Red Hunter, aka Peter and the Wolf. Well now there's another act to add to the lupine list: Peter Wolf Crier.

The Minneapolis-based folk duo is comprised of Peter Pisano on vocals and guitar and Brian Moen on percussion. Peter Wolf Crier's recently released debut album Inter-be (Jagjaguwar Records) swims in a sepia-hued dusty haze, Pisano's Bon Iver-esque vocals curling around Moen's energetic slap-and-rattle percussion. On tracks like "Crutch and Cane" there are wafts of Devendra Banhart, in his more subdued, sincere moments, while songs like "Saturday Night" take a bluesy turn, channeling Scout Niblett's raw yelp.

The video for the track "Hard As Nails" is appropriately haunting for the song's foreboding feel. Pisano walks through a darkened old house with a flashlight as Moen's drums pound like a thumping heartbeat. His yellowed flashbacks to moments spent with a love culminate in a ritual burning of her photos as her ghost sweeps past.

Catch Peter Wolf Crier with Retribution Gospel Choir at Neurolux on Thursday, Jan. 13.
