Battle Cry, SeizureChicken, and Cactus Club Present...
"Free Energy is one of the best live bands in America. After Friday
night’s show at Brooklyn Bowl, I’m ready to call them five of the best
people in the world, hands down, and give them any accompanying awards
(note to self
– check if there is a Rock ‘N’ Roll Noble Prize, award to Free Energy if
so), just based on the amount of joy the band brings into the world
with its music. Not in a “joy to the world” way, either, but in a “Trans
Am going 120 miles an hour while you’re out of your mind on whiskey and
weed” way. If there is a heaven, Free Energy will be the house band."

"What can we say about Peter Wolf Crier that hasn’t already been said? The Minneapolis-based duo of Peter Pisano (formerly of Wilco) and Brian Moen have definitely gone beyond the band to watch status we tagged them with in 2010. The release of the duo’s sophomore album, Garden of Arms, marks a maturation of their sound, and offers fans a set of 11 fresh tracks that are marked by experimentation, wonderful songwriting, a growing appreciation for music and a seriousness towards making music that gets people’s attention – and they are sure doing a good job at that.
The restrained intensity of “Setting It Off” and the experimental romp “Right Away” exemplify the contrasts the duo are involving more in their music. There is no question that the duo’s touring experience in 2010 has propelled them towards a more lively and intricate sound that includes organ foot pedals, looping effects, stronger drumming, reverb and dubbing. When we saw them live for the first time during South By Southwest 2010, the duo were one of that year’s biggest buzz bands, and they subsequently showed just why that was the case." - Indie Rock Cafe
