Joey Dosik – Take Mine
Ahead of his debut album’s release this Friday via Secretly Canadian, Joey Dosik is pleased to share his video for new single, “Take Mine.” Drawing inspiration from Carole King’s “You’ve Got A Friend” and Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me,” Dosik set out to write a song, much like those two, as a universal message to both children and adults.
“It’s a song about being willing to ask for help when you are in need,” says Dosik. “We live in a very turbulent world and there are a lot of people in need of the most basic human needs — food, water, shelter, freedom, security, opportunity. ‘Take Mine’ is about ourselves, the ones we love, and the people in need of help who we do not know.”
Of the video, Dosik says, it “begins with the camera following an older woman who appears to be lost as she wanders down the middle of a residential street. Eventually she is drawn by the sounds of a piano into a home where she sees part of her life flash before her eyes. The time-lapse cycles through the years, capturing her good times, her sad times, relationships, loss, and aging.
“We wanted to include several decades in the video to tell the story because the song has a message that is multi-generational. At the end, the woman is sitting at the piano with her son, played by me. I’m there to comfort her through her trying time, and there is also something there to comfort us all – music!”

Today sees the digital release of Richard Swift's masterpiece, 'The Hex.'
Richard Swift’s new album, 'The Hex,'
will be released tomorrow. The physical album is due out December 7th. Listen to "Sept20" now.
Goshen Electric Co. happened both all at once and gradually: an electrifying culmination of Strand of Oak’s Tim Showalter’s nearly two decades-long love affair with Jason Molina’s craft, and just one half-day spent in the recording studio with the members of Magnolia Electric Co. Today, the project shares the official video for single “The Gray Tower.”
Today Steven A. Clark releases his sophomore LP, 'Where Neon Goes to Die.' With one foot in the 80s pop / R&B that Clark grew up and the other in contemporary club the album flows in the vein of a Peter Gabriel meets Frank Ocean; a juxtaposition that feels new but familiar with Miami (Clark's residence) as the backdrop.
