Here's a nice slice of life that'll carry you through the weekend at hand if you let it. We've noticed the name Dent May cropping up here and there as of late...so much so, we figured it was time to look him up. Here's what we found out; He's a Mississippi man, he's got him one magnificent ukulele, and he's about to unleash his new album The Good Feeling Music of Dent May upon the world. Oh, and the dweeby looking dude (we mean that with love) recently signed to Paw Tracks after Animal Collective just so happened to stumble upon his music while recording their latest (and perhaps greatest?) new album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. That right there is a nice little story unto itself.

If by chance this marks the first time you've heard of DM, expect to find some sort of clunky combination between Martin Denny and Vampire Weekend...sonically. Also, the man knows how to align himself with the right people. In addition to all that Animal love, May will be opening for A.C. Newman on most dates. We've got the full slate of dates below.
