Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. 'Full speed ahead now, no more looking back.' Dent May confidently croons on his fifth LP, Late Checkout. The un-nostalgic sentiment and sobering clarity of May's album signifies the songwriter from Mississippi taking a reflective rest-stop on his decade-long career. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2015 and building his own studio, May began to savor the minutiae of his daily life spent wandering around LA, not getting invited to hang with friends, and waking up in hotel rooms after DJing weddings. Bearing the torch of classic American songwriters that inspired him like Harry Nilsson, Carole King, and Randy Newman, May has cultivated his iPhone notes and subconscious melodies into songs that could stand the test of time. Through the dozen tracks ranging from upbeat pop orchestrations to melancholy ballads, on Late Checkout, May grapples with the swinging emotions of our reality with a rare optimism and distinguished sound.
