Notes: Listening to Mississippi-native Dent May is like taking a lake-shore drive around the Southern psyche. There’s a laid-back lack of self-consciousness in May’s music that many a New York artist have spent thousands of dollars on chemical substances trying to achieve. His second album is mildly psychedelic and deceptively hooky, marinating and slow-cooking your musical brains like a rack of ribs. The comparisons to Brian Wilson are accurate…and frankly, that’s a good thing as he creates a mellowness that induces bliss, not boredom. Paired with a cocktail much in the spirit of May (it has ice cream…why? because ice cream is good, that’s why), take a slow day and “do things your own way.”
