The ukelele-toting troubadour evokes everything from classy '50s crooners to Jens Lekman

Spectacled singer Dent May is a dreamboat of the Cosby-sweater set. Hell-bent on resuscitating the oldies, the ukelele-toting troubadour evokes everything from classy '50s crooners to the quirky pop of Jens Lekman and Elvis Costello. Never shying away from a challenge, he also hips up the sweeping strings and interlocking vocal harmonies of doo-wop and '60s surf, ushering the disparate styles into the post-everything age. When he isn't kicking off a square dance ("You Can't Force a Dance Party") or lamenting lost love ("Girls on the Square"), May embraces the innate kitsch of his instrument, tearing exuberantly through his catalog of unabashedly cheeky cuts.
