Critic's Choice: The May Kit, January 16 at the hi-dive

Clearly there are some nods to Nick Drake in the way that the May Kit's Max Winne puts a song together. It's there in his ability to conjure images of flights of fantasy — the kind that strike you during your workday in a moment of reprieve from the prosaic tasks at hand. Perhaps Winne has a completely fulfilling day job, or maybe he's independently wealthy, but it sure sounds like he's coming up with this material in between the immediate demands of life. His songs articulate so well the need to create a space outside the mundane. His latest release, Songs About Things That Lack Definition, more or less spells out his attempt to come to terms with such necessities in modern life. Catch the May Kit at the hi-dive on Sunday, January 16.
