Dent May
Mississippi-based singer/songwriter and ukulele aficionado Dent May crafts elegant and whimsical pop tunes in the vein of Jens Lekman and Magnetic Fields, with a dash of Serge Gainsbourg and Jonathan Richman thrown in for good measure. In 2008 May inked a deal with the Animal Collective-founded Paw Tracks imprint, culminating in the release of The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele the following year. May soon turned to creating dance music under the name Dent Sweat, releasing a couple of synth-filled, R&B-inspired songs to the internet. His next album, 2012's Do Things, incorporated some of these elements into his sound, which was now completely devoid of ukulele. The sessions for his next record found May moving out of his home studio and recording by himself in a allegedly haunted house in St. Augustine. Less dance music-inspired and more introspective, 2013's Warm Blanket spotlights May's increasingly impressive songwriting skills.
