The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele
comes out Feb. 3, via Paw Tracks, and the quirky Mississippian is preparing to tour in support of his debut album. The February/March circuit begins in west Canada and works its way down through the Pacific states, then on through the Midwest before finishing in New York City (performance details below).
The New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman joins May sans band for 15 of the 20 dates. Matador will release Get Guilty, Newman's second solo album, at the end of January.
Keep an eye out for reviews of both albums in the February issue of Paste.
And, in the meantime, check out May's newest video, "Oh, Paris!"
