Dent May, Jack Name
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[PSYCH-POP] Dent May’s 2012 record, Do Things, seemed like a fluke. Its catchy guitar work, lazy synths and mild psychedelia were just too good to be true. But the Mississippi artist’s latest effort, Warm Blanket, doesn’t skip a beat, made of the same mold as the previous album and just as strong musically. Signed to Paw Tracks, May is right at home. His pop awareness, coupled with an experimental eye and attention to nostalgic, layered vocals would make labelmates like Animal Collective and Prince Rama proud. Normally, an act so voice- dependent would grow tiresome but Dent May’s elongated crooning is off-the-wall and endearing.
