We all tread lightly before knowing certainty but once we’re around the bend and all is good, we let our guard down and we begin to relax. With The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele, the bend was nothing more than a start to the most scenic of journeys. Listening to Dent May is like sitting back with an infinite beer watching the sunset and never getting up. It is time fixed like the moment you take a photograph, yet here in The Good Feeling … you are accompanied with the most charming of vocals courtesy of May and similar to Jens Lekman. It is an adorable album where optimism has not had the time to be crushed by reality. So sweet is The Good Feeling … , it is like licking your ice-cream a bit too hard that it has fallen off the cone. You momentarily peer down at your feet with an ice-cream splat on the floor acknowledging your loss but as a reflex, you look back up and run straight back to the ice-cream man for more. With Dent May, you’ll keep coming back for more.
