Watch: Eddi Front - Texas (live)

Brooklyn songstress Eddi Front (née Ivana Carrescia) is the latest moody and slightly-too-dark-to-be-whimsical act to come out of the trendy borough. She's caused quite the stir recently in the online music press (and the odd print offering too), since unveiling her self-titled EP via Best Fit Recordings in November 2012.

File her somewhere near Cat Power, Lia Ices and Emily Haines' (of Metric) side-project with the Soft Skeleton and you'll be close to her brand of brooding, breathy and confessional music. She hit the U.K. shores for a handful of dates last year, and makes her U.S. debut under the Eddi Front moniker on January 24th at New York City's Slipper Room. $12 tickets are still going here.

In this Yours Truly session from October, watch her sing "Texas", one of the four songs from the EP. I may be interviewing her next week, time permitting, and hope to make it down to her show too. Check out a recent Lindsay Zoladz feature on Pitchfork to get more of her back-story if you like what you hear so far.
