Dana Gavanski: Catch

The new single from the just-signed songstress features sweet vocals atop gradually swelling production.

Dana Gavanski: Catch

By Kerry Doole

Dana Gavanski - Catch (Flemish Eye Records): This Vancouver-born singer/songwriter, a new name to us, has just announced a signing with Calgary’s Flemish Eye Records. She has been working with Toronto-based musician Sam Gleason and UK-based producer/ musician Mike Lindsay (Tunng, LUMP) on her debut full-length album which is expected this year.


Gavanski has released a new single, Catch, one she describes in a label press release as "a conversation with the gods of creativity, an attestation to the daily struggle to be inspired and how not to lose direction." 

She sweetly and gently tells her tale atop an initially minimal production that gradually swells in scope. The track is subtly ingratiating, though the somewhat disturbing video detracts from rather than bolstering it. Another track, One By One, confirms this is an artist to watch carefully.

Gavanski plays URSA in Montreal on January 10, alongside Yves Jarvis and Luka Kuplowsky. She then tours the UK and Europe supporting Damien Jurado, starting with a Feb. 19 show in Nijmegen, NL.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
