YOUNG GOVERNOR: “English Tim” b/w “In the Heart of a Harem”: 7”

Nov 24, 2009

Young Governor, undeniably, has a knack for rough-but-buttery pop; it’s got a crackling wrapper and a sweet, satisfying center; well worth taking the time to savor. Part of me wants a wee bit higher production so when the screams come, they don’t sound so tattered-speakers, but the other part of me wonders if the charm is from everything not being “perfect” and just letting it roll. With a trio of backup singers, the hit’s “English Tim.”
