Dent May w/Tim Chad and Sherry & Meth Dad
If Dent May has been off your radar for a minute, you might be a little perplexed by his billing with local electro-funk groove unit Tim Chad and Sherry. After all, the first time around, the Oxford, Miss., native was jamming out uke-infused AM gold that made us strongly consider adding a straw hat and seersucker suit to our wardrobe. May hasn’t abandoned the classic pop architecture or flair for memorable melody that marked his debut, but he did trade in his uke for electronic production gear along the way to 2012’s Do Things. His new groove, influenced equally by Ace of Bass and The Beach Boys, allows him to continue addressing the perpetual disaffection of youth while exploring new sonic territory, which he does quite well; Daft Punk he’s not, but his electro jams are tight and bob-and-weave ready. Couple that with TC&S’ liquid kinetic freshness, lately augmented with the six smokin’ strings of Richie Kirkpatrick in place of William Tyler, and we’ll call that a party.
