mp3: Dent May | “Eastover Wives”


The new 7" single from Mississippi's Dent May is almost here, and if y'all thought the A-side was good, get into the undeniable, silky smooth "disco-funk jammer" "Eastover Wives," featuring Charles Roy Washington on sax. Arguably the best thing Dent's ever done.


That Feeling/Eastover Wives is out September 14 on Forest Family. Limited to 1000 copies -- the first 500 coming on soft lavender vinyl -- with artwork by the multi-talented homie Will Bryant (check the back cover after the jump). Both jams were mastered by Rusty Santos, and will likely appear on Dent's forthcoming Paw Tracks full-length. Pre-order here.
