Young Guv: Guv I (2019)
It's hard to pick a favorite song here, as nearly every track on this brief EP/LP (8 songs hovering in that 2:30-3:00 sweet spot) is the sort of thing that would be Top 40 radio fodder in the alternate universe where Big Star was the biggest band ever. "High On My Mind" is the one I'm playing right now, insanely hook-laden pop that would've fit right in on Teenage Fanclub's Bandwagonesque, Cook adorning the track with lovely multi-tracked harmonies. But lead-off track "Patterns Prevail" is another contender, a sick hook that you'll hum to yourself all day and probably into the night. Damn it's great.
Just a couple months later, the guy released, yes, Guv II. It's a bit more varied that the first one, a bit more of a 70s soft pop crossed with new wave vibe, but still excellent (albeit more of a slow burner than the in-your-face pop immediacy of part one).
You can buy both of them as downloads or on CD courtesy of Bandcamp.
