Young Guv
Guv I & II

In the space of barely over 12 months, Young Guv - the recording moniker of Canadian-born artist Ben Cook - has made two albums’ worth of glorious retro-pop/rock, titled GUV I and GUV II. For the first time, both are now available in one package via Run For Cover Records, featuring two bonus tracks and new artwork.

Young Guv
2 Sad 2 Funk

The loveable scamps at Glasgow’s Night School (Happy Meals, Julia Holter) have locked down the latest LP from Young Guv. The Canadian artist has about a decade of releases under his belt at this point, but 2 Sad 2 Funk ranks among his best. Channelling Toro Y Moi, Prince, Porches and more, this is a synth-pop album that manages to be simultaneously funny and affecting.

Young Guv
Ripe 4 Luv

When he isn’t being all hardcore, Ben Cook (Fucked Up/No Warning) writes pop hits for Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift. With his Young Guv project, he (sort of) reconciles these two sides of his musical personality, offering exuberant tunes which are nevertheless a little ragged at the edges, evoking Shoes, Big Star and occasionally the anthemic melodicism of the above popettes.
