The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele by Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele
MIST026 THE GOOD FEELING MUSIC OF DENT MAY
|Dent May was discovered by Animal Collective when they were recording their new record in Dent’s home of Oxford, Mississippi. Dent’s unique vocal style, part crooner, part falsetto, and 101 percent showman reflects the influences of some of his favorite singers (Prince, Serge Gainsbourg, and Lee Hazlewood to name a few). His love of various song styles results in a unique combination of ukulele, drums, pedal steel, violin, horns and bass. One second his songs hint at Brazilian Tropicalia, the next a 1950s barbershop quartet or an early 20th century country swing.
“May’s croon could almost be a young Elvis Costello, and his music fits between sun-faded bossa nova and faded country-swing… a lovely selection of nerdy, ukulele-led tunes” – MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE
