8th November 2019 / 2LP / Run For Cover Records

Young Guv



Young Guv is Ben Cook, a songwriter, a dedicated and prolific songwriter of rare talent. The real deal. In the summer of 2018, he moved from his Toronto home to a sublet in Brooklyn, and there he began writing some of the best songs of his life, because that's what Young Guv does. His manic  songwriting pace produced two albums worth of power-pop bliss, psychedelic riffs, and swagger. The end result: Guv I and Guv II, two full-length albums. Now,  for the first time both of Young Guv's releases from this year are presented in one reimagined set, GUV I & II, on colour vinyl. Featuring new art laid out and illustrated by Braulio Amado as well as two new bonus tracks exclusive to the release - 19 tracks in one set, for your ears only,  on Double Neon Red vinyl
