Monowhales - 'Real Love'

By David Farrell

Monowhales – ‘Real Love’ (Independent): This is the second single from the Toronto indie rock band’s June 1 EP release entitled Control Freak.

Indie88 Toronto, The Zone Victoria, Live 88.5 Ottawa, and Rock 95 Barrie are early fans of this infectious upbeat pop song powered by Sally Shaar's indelibly strong vocals performance throughout.

The single was produced by AL-P of MSTRKRFT and recorded during the same session that gave us their previous single “Take It Back,” which peaked at #25 on the Canadian Alternative Rock Charts.

Giving them a leg up, the band plays the CMW kick-off party at Phoenix Concert Theatre with Goodnight, Sunrise, and Matt & Kim on Monday, May 7.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
