Christy & Emily turn up the volume on "Tic Tac Toe" - out in January

Known for their elegantly delicate tunes flirting with contemporary music influences, talented New Yorkers Christy & Emily announced the release a new album entitled "Tic Tac Toe" (out in January) which reveals two new band members, and a few tunes featuring a more "rock" approach to songwriting. We are favoriably impressed with the new songs which can be streamed on their website. Quiet numbers haven't disappeared from the new record, but the presence of faster tracks makes for a more entertaining listening experience. Check out "Bells" streaming below.

NYC's Brooms releases debut album at Sycamore on 12.15

Brooms dabble in and out of musical worlds that flirt with sonic invention while exploring domestic dramas like cleaning a girlfriend's shower and dealing with messy cats. Indeed, this is the stuff of life, and as singer-songwriters like Randy Newman have done before, the duo of Matt Cascella and Brett Crudgington are sweeping it all into their inviting and lush soundscapes.

The video (streaming below) for first single 'Barracuda Belly' (directed by Brett Haley) features young lovers awkwardly exploring the mess of new relationships against Coney Island's backdrop. Taken from debut record 'In the Backyard,' it's filled with embarrassing reminders of how difficult it is to manage butterflies (or in this case barraacudas) while hanging out with a new lady and attempting to eat ice cream at the same time. See the video below, and check out the band when they play at Sycamore Bar on Dec 15th. Check out also the other single "Balding," below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

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)
