Ben Cook wears dark, chunky sunglasses when he performs as his indie-pop act, Young Guv. Put one way, his thick, plastic rims are shorthand for his musical inspirations--Elvis Costello's effusive power-pop, the Gallaghers' psychedelic glam rock. But paired with the hazy tracks on Young Guv's third LP, GUV I, the frames serve as a disguise: Forget about Ben Cook, guitarist for Toronto hardcore icons Fucked Up.
