"For years and years, thought I was born to die alone" goes the opening line of Dent May
's new single. May, who sounds like an American Jens Lekman
, makes strummy, throwback pop music that toes the line between kitsch and sincerity. Also, it's super catchy.
May, who calls Mississippi home, is signed to AnCo
's Paw Tracks label which may surprise you a bit after hearing how easy-listening and straightforward his music is, but perhaps his presence on the label signifies how there's a little something in May's output for everybody? I don't know! Check it out. The That Feeling/Eastover Wives
7" is due out September 14th from Forest Family Records. -ben krusling
