Dent May: “Let Them Talk”

After last year’s much buzzed about Do Things, we’re excited for the release of the Mississippi power-pop singer/songwriter’s third album, Warm Blanket, coming out on August 27th via Paw Tracks. The breezy track features May’s typical reverbed, psychedelic-folk tinged pop, just as delightful as always, but more erratic than normal. The shimmering synths and whispering vocals are perfect for the warm late summer weather.

The album was recorded in seclusion in a reportedly haunted Victorian mansion in St. Augustine, FL, and is looking like his most ambitious release to date. You can pre-order the album here.
