CRITIC’S PICK: The two founding members of Texas folk/rockers Briscoe, Truett Heintzelman and Philip Lupton, add some friends to moderately expand their stripped-down sound for the duo’s forthcoming ATO debut. They write catchy tunes, sing ’em with youthful energy and don’t let excess production or instrumentation ruin the roots fun. Their harmonies are effortlessly tuneful and the songwriting is full of the life you’d hope youngsters still have. Joyful and upbeat. — Hal Horowitz
From the venue:Briscoe is the Austin-based project of Truett Heintzelman and Philip Lupton, formed during their time at the University of Texas. They wrote West of It All as graduation loomed in the distance, funneling the stories of their college experience — from heartbreak to hard-won lessons to weekend trips into the rural countryside — into a raw, rugged blend of classic and contemporary influences.
