Shadow Expert is a collection of bent or broken pop songs. The EP is made up of discrete games and experiments in a similar way to Trading Basics; here, though, they are rendered more to support songs than to be the songs themselves. Written and recorded in 2015.”

“By the time I felt ready to begin working on a new record, I knew that this idea of space within music would be something that propelled my new work forward. The artists that were influencing what I was making included everyone from Travis Scott to Daft Punk, Frank Ocean to Oneohtrix Point Never, Kashif and Gigi Masin. I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof. I decided that I wanted to make a Pop record with these ideas in mind. That idea for a record is what eventually became Boo Boo.” – Chaz B.

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.
