Marco Flammang Absolutely timeless joy. And while it seems that his songs work in any musical setup, one could argue that the semi-accoustic approach is the most direct and wonderful. The vinyl copy I got a few years ago is slightly dented (!), so I'm really happy about this lossless digital thing. Favorite track: I'm An Alcoholic.

about

You may have heard of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele, a new pop musician from Oxford, Mississippi. If not, you’ll be hearing a lot from him in the coming year.

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 ‘50s barbershop quartet or an early 20th century country swing.

By integrating his favorite pop music from around the world and writing about what is in front of him (his town, his friends, and pretty girls), Dent takes the “think global, buy local” motto to heart. He may just be one of the 21st century’s first sustainable pop singers.

Animal Collective first heard Dent May when they were recording their new record in Oxford Mississippi in early 2008. They quickly signed him to their Paw Tracks imprint and now we present his incredibly impressive debut full length, "The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele."

With excitement reaching a fever pitch a new term has been coined: Dent Maynia. Catch it.
