Briscoe – ‘Animal’
Bart Denaro spent nine years playing drums for Kid Confucius, a year lamenting the post band split and lesser time trying to refine his love of pop hooks repressed behind all that funk drumming. Briscoe is his first outing since KC and it couldn’t be further away from any of his former pursuits. First impressions first though, this is a great track on the assumption that it sounds like a mash-up of all my favourite Wilco albums in three minutes. Homely hooks laying right through and an epic bridge also makes this tune sweet music to my ears. Briscoe’s debut album Friends Ago is set for release soon, and by the sounds of this it should deserve a solid listen.
Briscoe are playing a free show at The Great Northern in Newcastle on March 3rd with Fearless Vampire Killers + The Owls.
