Dent May shares second single + announces tour dates

June 13, 2017 12:59 pm

Dent May shared the second single from his upcoming album, “Picture On A Screen,” by way of a lyric video. Head over to Consequence of Sound to check it out.

The track is as smooth as the resolution on the latest MacBook, with horns and plinking piano twinkling like pixels forming a lounge-y, psych pop image. “Reach out your hand to me/ I’m paralyzed in real life,” Dent May begs on the bridge. “Reach out your hand to me/ Some late night in real life.”

“’Picture On A Screen’ is a love letter to a jpeg. It’s not just about falling in love on the Internet. It’s about falling in love with the Internet.” -Dent May

Across The Multiverse will be out August 18th. Pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes. Order today and receive the first two singles instantly.

Dent May announces “Across The Multiverse” + shares first single

May 16, 2017 9:20 am

We are unbelievably excited to announce the newest release from Dent May, Across The Multiverse, will be coming out August 18th. The first single, the title track featuring Frankie Cosmos, is streaming now via Stereogum.

“Following the lead of musical-polymaths-with-LA-ties before him like Brian Wilson, Van Dyke Parks, and Harry Nilsson, Dent’s style on Across the Multiverse will be familiar to fans of his previous work. Yet there’s something more refined about this collection… Stately strings mingle with boogie piano like old friends. Synths weave a celestial backdrop throughout. Every verse, bridge and chorus in its right place, giving it the unmistakable feel of a true songwriting craftsman at work. ”

Pre-orders are available everywhere. Pick up a physical copy on the Carpark shop or digitally on iTunes. Order today and receive the title track instantly. First 100 customers to pre-order a physical copy of Across The Multiverse will receive an autographed Dent May poster.

Dent May premieres new track

July 20, 2016 1:18 pm

After releasing three albums on our sub-label Paw Tracks, Dent May is back with “Face Down In The Gutter Of Your Love.” Stream the track via Gorilla vs. Bear.

“‘Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love’ is everything we love about vintage Dent, blending his smooth AOR-disco stylings and romantic yacht rock sentimentality with a darker, yearning side of his signature light-hearted wit, making for a wistful, heartfelt love song…”

Snag your copy of the track on the Carpark shop or iTunes.
