Editorial Reviews

Warm Blanket is the third album from Mississippi songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Dent May. Recorded in solitude in a reportedly haunted Victorian house by the bay in St. Augustine, Florida, Dent's most ambitious undertaking yet, is another kaleidoscopic odyssey through the restless musical mind of a DIY pop auteur. The result is an album of existential pop, psychedelic funk, and melancholy soul with soaring arrangements ripped from the pages of classic American songwriting.

Dent May delights us with her ​​third album, full of honesty, simplicity, harmony, all bathed in melancholy and pleasant sounds, written, produced and performed by this orchestra man, not wanting to fall into unfriendly comparisons, Dent May sweetly reminds us of Brian Wilson in the best sense, of course saving and respecting differences, this is an album full of unpretentious harmonious sounds, this production is a sequel to his previous album ( Do Things ) (but more honest ) but better built and much better produced.

This album is like the gentle summer breeze , which despite being very melancholic is so refreshing and enjoyable.

I feel special fondness for multi-instrumentalists artists who make a comprehensive production by themselves, in this special case that Dent May delights us with his unbridled creativity, show us all the dedication and love for their work that is translated and implemented in this beautiful album .

Warm Blanket is an album that stands out, despite the unfriendly criticism of the journals, which are on the hunt for any artist to destroy them, I challenge you to write , execute and produce an album to see what the outcome.

Since buying this album I've heard many times and it really is fantastic and delicious,
is a comprehensive album, highly recommended, my full support to the independent and highly creative production .

All these songs are great. Dent speaks the truth so simply stated. It's like audible sunshine. Buy it and listen.

I Love this CD especially, "Born Too Late." Excellent sounds of the instruments that makes me think of the Beach boys, the Beatles and also Elvis Costello. I wish that there was more music like this today to enjoy instead of rap!

3rd release from Mississippi artist--mellow, flowing 60s retro-pop with a funky 70s AM radio
flavor that's just a bit "off". Strangely cheesy, accessible & sometimes danceable elevator music
with a blissful tongue-in-cheek IQ that's alternately silly, pretty, relaxing and dreamy. Recalls
artists such as the Beach Boys, Foxygen, Jens Lekman, Shintaro Sakamoto, Boz Scaggs, Momus.

Dent May isn't shy about his love for Brian Wilson. On 2012s Do Things he showed a knack for creating a musical gumbo that was equal parts Beach Boys and Animal Collective. It was an interesting, and at times quite pleasant listening experience. Having been signed to Paw Tracks the Animal Collective beats and quirks were understandable. But for a guy that was known as Dent May and his Magnificent Ukulele before going with just his name the Pet Sounds sounds were surprising. Dent May has returned from wherever he was hanging out and writing more pop confections and gives us Warm Blanket. Like the title suggests, this is an album of warm, gooey pop tracks that are sure to warm you up from the inside out. The Animal Collective mannerisms pop up here and there, but for the most part this is a straight up pop record that makes no qualms about its unabashed love of AM Gold, honey-sweet sentiment, and even the occasional f-bomb.

"Turn Up The Speakers" brings to mind a young-ish Harry Nilsson and his "Turn Up The Radio", albeit a truncated version at just over a minute long before "Let Them Talk" comes in and says throw caution to the wind. A sassy little number about not caring who knows who he's in love with. There's still those Panda Bear mannerisms in the whooshing synths, but for the most part Dent May seems pretty solid in his own footing. "Born Too Late" has a disco beat and hand claps, bringing to mind Andrea True Connection's "More, More, More". Don't let that scare you off as it's great song, and filled with Brian Wilson-lamenting about wishing you were older than you were. "I can't explain but I'm at that age/I'm born too late", May sings as the beat goes on. "Yazoo" is a lilting ballad, while "Corner Piece" brings to mind late-80s/early 90s Adrian Belew.
