EDITORS’ NOTES

Dent May soaks his smooth-crooning, lighthearted pop in SoCal sunshine before shooting it into space. Much of Across the Multiverse is guided by the clang of piano plinks and glazed in a vintage sheen: He takes on Elton John's poise in the swinging opener, "Hello Cruel World," and Harry Nilsson's eccentric baroque flourishes on colorful, synth-infused tracks like "Take Me to Heaven." His dreamy, Brian Wilson-like vocals add a touch of psychedelia, especially when he finds extraterrestrial love on the horn-fueled title track.

Beach Boys meet Mayer Hawthorne

One of the sleeper LPs of 2017. If you dig the soulful vibe of Mayer Hawthorne, appreciate the layered melodies of the Beach Boys and the first two albums of Fitz & the Tantrums, then Dent May should be in your wheelhouse. Layered vocals, uplifting major keys, a sunny, summer vibe. While no breakthrough single, there isn't a weak track on the album. De-stress. Dent's gonna make everything's alright.

This Is The Best Hidden Treasure

Saw a review in the "Life" section of my local paper this morning. Played it all day long on YouTube. Bought the album as soon as I got home. His voice sounds like a mix between Elvis Costello and Randy Newman but better! Truly love this entire album. I'm now an instant fan and hope he hits the northeast soon!
