Young Guv – Ripe 4 Luv

‘F*cked Up’ guitarist Ben Cook’s side project ‘Young Guv’ is a big leap away from the parent band’s hardcore sound, but the tunes are just as celebratory. Ripe 4 Luv is easy-breezy garage power pop for summer that is just messy enough to stay interesting. Tasty, pleasant pop-rocks with drum kit beats. The album is split between breathy/synthy tracks 1-4 and punkier tracks 5-8.

Play: 4, 5, 3, 6

RIYL: Ariel Pink, Mac Demarco, Kurt Vile, The Stone Roses
