Boomkat Product Review:
A truly terrific new release from the Paw Tracks gang, marking a more pronounced step towards pop sounds than their usual angular pursuits. Songwriter and ukulele strummer Dent May situates himself somewhere between Morrissey, Scott Walker and George Formby, delivering his boundlessly charming songs with a rich, crooning intonation and a spring in his step. 'College Town Boy' is a perfect paean to post-university inertia, filled with casual existentialism and general woe. The tone remains perky throughout, capped off by a Smiths-go-easy-listening chorus - it's just sublime. The theme of higher education returns during 'At The Academic Conference', a song about falling in love over Powerpoint presentations, populated by confessional lines like: "Joyce, Whitman and Camus? Well no, I've never read them/I'm here just for the booze". May's writing never fails to charm, and in addition to his wry turn of phrase he's got an incredible ability to drop in the ideal chorus whenever it's required. You could strike up parallels between Dent May and contemporaries like Jens Lekman, Beirut's Zach Condon or even preppy charmers Vampire Weekend, and this brilliant debut commands just as much attention as any of those aforementioned acts. A huge recommendation.
