Daily Dose: Clint Michigan, “Knickerbocker Street”

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

Clint Michigan is the longtime project of New York musician Clint Asay, and on his new album, Centuries, he addresses some very personal and serious topics.

“I had struggled with sobriety for years, but it eventually got completely out of control,” Asay says in a press release. “Long story short, I couldn’t function, I couldn’t keep a job, and I lost contact with literally everyone. It seemed impossible that I’d ever do anything again, let alone make music.”

The melancholy indie-folk of “Knickerbocker Street,” and its accompanying video, follows Asay’s road to recovery. “I was running away, but on Knickerbocker Street they don’t care what you say,” the moody clip warns against a gloomy Brooklyn backdrop. Watch below.

Centuries, featuring contributions from members of The Julie Ruin and The Moldy Peaches, is out April 27.
