dentmayukelele09-4-7This guy is unbelievably charming. Most likely, the future king of nerd-rock. Dent May hails from Jackson, Mississippi and has been involved in numerous music projects, including Cowboy Maloney’s Electric City and The Rockwells. More recently, he toured with and opened for the Animal Collective. As one would gather from the name of the band, most of Dent May’s songs feature the ukulele. Giving it a nice touch of folk and a cloak of innocence, though the songs are far from that. Don’t let yourself be fooled by the facade of naivete, May likes to add themes of sexuality to many of his tunes, much like Elton and Betty White or Serge Gainsbourg. Always humorous, and never depressing, Delton May will be having his first headlining tour this year (dates below). His debut album, The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele was released on Feb. 3. So if you like what you hear, pick it.

Also, check out his latest music video for the song, “Howard.” It’s pretty amazing…
