YOUNG GOVERNOR: “Firing Squad” b/w “25 with a Bullet”: 7”

May 27, 2011

A mix of the Bay City Rollers and King Khan And BBQ? Does that sound too stupid? There’s a crisp eagerness and knowledgeable veteranship in Young Guv, matched to an infectious ear for music, and he’s not afraid to slow down, get electro-weird, go acoustic, or get lush. These two tracks show another dimension to the cut crystal of Ben Cook’s talent. Wholly enjoyable, worth tracking down, and I predict that his 7”s will become harder-than-hell to find the longer you sleep on it.
