Wolf Parade - Julia Take Your Man Home

Wolf Parade is no stranger to the music industry. The Canadian indie rock band formed back in 2003 in Montreal, Quebec. They released 3 full-length studio albums before taking a 5-year hiatus in 2011, then returning in 2016 with Cry, Cry, Cry. Their newest release, The Mind, dropped last year. The group has received critical acclaim and has an international following.

Off that album they bring us Julia Take Your Man Home, a single and new video animated by Chad VanGaalen. Filled with fast moving, colour animation that is quite often moving to the beat of the song, the video definitely keeps you wondering “what will happen next?” It follows what is seemingly a drunk man - presumably Julia’s boyfriend, as he makes a fool of himself (and Julia) at the bar. The visuals give off a drunk brain type of vibe, where nothing fully makes sense unless you’re living it. 

Video animator and director (and recording artist) VanGaalen has been nominated for the Prism Prize on many occasions, and he won in 2015 for helming the video for Beat the Drum Slowly by psych folk outfit Timber Timbre.

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.
