Peter and the Wolf 

p.m. Monday, October 1. Billiken Club, 20 North Grand Boulevard

Austin's Peter and the Wolf is fronted by one Red Hunter, a songwriter who gravitates toward back-porch, lo-fi folk traditions. On his first proper Peter release, Lightness, he falls somewhere between Devendra Banhart, Sun Kil Moon and Songs: Ohia. He sings about bonsai trees, snake charmers, and even has a sea shanty up his sleeve, sounding alternately optimistic and downright creepy. The stripped-down acoustic guitar Hunter favors places emphasis on his deep, youthful voice, a common trick among these raw, soft-sounding folkies.
