Liner notes: “I’ve been feeling bad/So I’m gonna find something to cure that heartache,” sighs Dent May, his multiple vocal tracks channeling a heavenly choir.

Behind the music: While the Mississippi native emphasized ukulele on his debut, Do Things finds him in mad-scientist mode, crafting elaborate solo pop epics in sessions at a local venue called Cats Purring Dude Ranch and in a cabin by a cotton field.
