Joey Dosik – Don’t Want It To Be Over
Suuns share the official video for latest single, “Look No Further,” taken from their new album, Felt (out now on Secretly Canadian). The video is based on Lorraine Price‘s (“Last Woman Standing,” “Inside These Walls”) footage from Werner Herzog’s workshop in San Antonio de los Banos, Cuba, 2017. It was shot in a small village that used to be a housing development for workers at a textile factory. The kids – all non-professional actors – were prompted to discuss magic, and what arose provokes thoughts about youth, disappointment and mystery. Strangely, it speaks to the song.
Felt is both a continuation and rebirth, the Montreal quartet returning to beloved local facility Breakglass Studios (where they cut their first two albums [Zeroes QC and Images Du Futur] with Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes) but this time recording themselves at their own pace, over five fertile sessions spanning several months. A simultaneous stretching out and honing in, mixed to audiophile perfection by St. Vincent producer John Congleton (helmer of 2016’s Hold/Still), who flew up especially from Dallas to deploy his award-winning skills in situ.
Next week, Suuns will kick off their first U.S. headline tour in support of Felt. They’ve partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold goes to support Youth Speaks and their work through arts education, youth development, and civic engagement, to challenge young people to find, develop, publicly present, and apply their voices as creators of societal change. Following the U.S. run, the band will tour Southeast Asia. A full list of dates is below.

Joey Dosik’s debut album, Inside Voice, is set for release August 24th via Secretly Canadian. Today, he’s thrilled to share the Tim Hendrix-directed video for album’s second single, “Don’t Want It To Be Over” (Feat. Coco O.). The song “is too happy to be just be a break up song and too dark lyrically to be just a make up song,” says Dosik.
We are heartbroken today to have lost our dear friend, collaborator and artist Richard Swift. He passed in the early hours of this morning. From the moment he first came into our lives in the fall of 2004, it was clear he was a rarefied soul. His family, friends, music community and everyone who loved him are in our thoughts. Fingerpaint with the blackest ink you can get your mitts into today.
Steven A. Clark has announced a new LP, 'Where Neon Goes To Die,' available September 7th via Secretly Canadian. 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.
Today, Stella Donnelly releases the physical 12″ version of her 'Thrush Metal' EP, which includes a bonus track. Last fall, Donnelly made her bold introduction to North American audiences with the video for “Boys Will Be Boys” following her unanimous win of Bigsound 2017’s inaugural Levi’s Music Prize, an award given to an emerging Australian talent most likely to make waves internationally.
