Ben Cook plays guitar in Fucked Up, and he’s also the former frontman of the beloved Toronto hardcore band No Warning, who have played a few reunion shows lately. On his own, though, Cook makes music that has little, if anything, to do with hardcore. Cook’s solo side project Young Guv specializes in a light, sunny, crunchy sort of indie-pop, and he’s got a new album called Ripe 4 Luv coming out next week. We’ve posted his songs “Wrong Crowd,” “Crushing Sensation,” and “Crawling Back To You,” and now you can stream the whole thing below.
Ripe 4 Luv is out 3/10 on Slumberland.
