Video premiere: Johanna & the Dusty Floor - live at Matchless on 12.13 (tonight)

Johanna Cranitch doesn't sacrifice vulnerability for power. Crashing in to a party usually consisting of tumbling drum fills and keyboards that scream out sine waves at every turn, Johanna stands tall. For her new video 'Lover's Dream' (streaming below), she does all this while covered in daubs of running paint. With band in tow, Johanna and the Dusty Floor cleans house in a song sure to haunt your dreams well after Johanna's gaze leaves your browser window. Check out the new video below, and see her when she plays tonight, Thursday, Dec 13, at Bar Matchless at 8pm.- Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

San Fermin announces album release + plays Pianos on 12.19 with Lucius vocalists as guests

It's always interesting to see what great backing musicians and songwriters are able to do once they've decided to take the reins to their own project in hand, and start baking their own jams. 23 year old Yale composition graduate Ellis Ludwig-Leone couldn't come better equipped for the adventure. Coming off work for Nico Muhly, through whom he has assisted on arrangements for musicians like Sufjan Stevens, his group San Fermin includes these symphonic influences and more.

Oh.. and he just happens to have enlisted the ladies from Lucius to help out, who if you don't know yet, may have the strongest voices of anyone in Brooklyn. Leading new single 'Sonsick,' off the upcoming self-titled debut, enlists Jess and Holly to take the song through the roof. Make no mistake. This is some big stuff right here. While the song begins simply enough, once the hook comes in, you should be prepared to get carried away. San Fermin's about as ambitious as I would hope for such a young songwriter, and I'm excited to see them when they play 92YTribeca next month on Jan 19th with Anais Kane. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Starnes&Shah play Arlene on 12.15

Starnes&Shah are two ladies who hail from diverse backgrounds but come together to create dual harmonies and guitar and keyboard-driven alt-pop. Guitarist Dania Abu-Shaheen, originally from Lebanon and keyboardist Zilpha Starnes, who was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, settled in New York, releasing their third full-length record, “Red Brick Tide” since their formation in 2005. The duo - who can boast slmody 10k Facebook likes - recently released a video for album half-way point, “Lucinda,”  which serves as a soundtrack to a variety of individuals enduring suburban life. The two front-women will be performing their last show of 2012 on Saturday, December 15 at Arlene’s Grocery but will be venturing on in the new year with new material and shows to follow.  –Meijin Bruttomesso

New to NYC: Brothertiger, live at Bowery Electric on 12.20 with Teeel

John Jagos (a/k/a Brothertiger) is a recent Brooklyn transplant from Athens, OH, where he wrought perfectly connived and joyfully-rendered electropop that drifts from yours speakers like a feather in the wind. “Bossa” is the latest Brothertiger offering, a sexy lo-fi synthpop number that evokes the joy of wanderlust whilst recalling the obtuse electro sound of Washed Out. Though not as fun as last year’s “Be Yourself,” hopefully “Bossa” is just a taste of what Jagos will do now that he’s landed in Hipsterville. See him live at Bowery Electric on December 20 with New Jersey electronica masters Teeel- Brian Chidester

NYC artists on the rise: Sinkane plays Music Hall of W'burg on 12.13 with !!!

Sinkane is the creative force behind many exciting releases by Brooklyn bands who are flirting with Afrobeat. If you listen to Yeasayer at all, chances are you've already heard Ahmed Gallab's distinct vocal and drumming feel. The Sudanese export (now home in New York) nods to many of the high life flavors of his past, while stretching his muse to the future by collaborating with many of our local trendsetters. From Twin Shadow, to James Murphy, Sinkane doesn't just have his finger on the pulse, he is the man behind much of Brooklyn's Ivory Coast obsessions. Now he's set out on his own journey, and has carried his international roots over to his exciting second album, 'Mars.' His journey comes together in new single 'Runnin' (streaming below) where he brings a consciousness to the Sudanese people that's desperately needed. See him when he plays - with band - at Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night (12.13) with !!!Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
