Predator/Prey carries on Fort Wilson Riot’s winning mix of eclectic taste and conceptual structure. To record the album, the real-life couple turned their house into a mix of studio and rehearsal space, using their bedroom closet as a recording booth. Bouncing ideas off each other at all hours and bringing in trusted friends and collaborators, Predator/Prey is not only a reflection of Mullis and Hager as Fort Wilson Riot, but about evolving together. Now the duo have left their day jobs and hit the road, bringing their ebullient sound across the country.
“[Predator/Prey is] ...one of the most intriguing and irresistible slabs of Minnesota music released this year...”
- Rob van Alstyne, City Pages (July 28th, 2010)
“If Fort Wilson Riot is a tornado, their live act is a perfect balance of the calm before the storm and the glittering excitement of it''s strength”
-Natalie Gallagher, How Was The Show (July 30th, 2010)
“Accessibility without surrendering the depth”
-David Campbell, Minnesota Public Radio (July 25th, 2010)
“A daring feat”
-Andrea Swensson, City Pages (July 14th, 2010)
“...from the playful Tin Pan Alley ditty "Diamond Blues" and the sultry, leave-the-light-on romp "All My Friends" to the full-on rock closer "Lead Me On (Pieces of the War, Part 2)." Best of the bunch is the reverby, Grizzly Bear-like harmonizer "Gold-Flecked Morning," while Hager''s long, "Leader of the Pack"-like cooing bit in "Lately" is priceless.”
-Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune (July 30th, 2010)
