Having Fun with Dent May

Any day that I get to say "Dent May has a new song out" is arguably the best day of my week.

In case you are unfamiliar, Dent May (also known as the "softest boy in Mississippi") is the southern wonder responsible for the 2009 gem The Good Feeling Music of Dent May and His Magnificent Ukelele. His crooning will make you cringe and then hit "back" to hear that tune one more time.

Today, the world is one more Dent May song richer. "Fun" is available to listen to below. It's a groove-y little '70s-style summer tune, sadly devoid of his signature ukelele.

Don't let that deter you, though. I'll be damned if this isn't quite catchy. Anywho, May is releasing a "7 of the single September 13 on Paw Tracks. (Q: Wait, isn't that Animal Collective's label? A: Why, yes. Yes, it is. Very astute observation, friend.)

Oh, and one more thing. Check out his music video for "Meet me in the Garden." It is no doubt the reason so many have fallen in love with the sound and style of Dent May. Here's to hoping an LP is on the way.
