California Sounds: Baths' 'Dream Daddy' theme, Dent May's '90210' ode and Nine Inch Nails' 'Add Violence'

Dent May, “90210” (Carpark). You need not know the Highland Park-based singer’s bio before popping on his new song, because he lays out some basics in the lyrics.

He’s open about his finances, for example, telling a would-be lover via a barroom piano melody, strummed guitar and voice in the opening verse that he doesn't have a lot of money, but so what? "I'm going to a party in second-hand clothes: Address 90210."

The second verse adds to May's backstory: “I ain’t got much to cruise to valet/ But these four wheels do me OK/ This Mississippi boy sure ain’t used to this view/ I come from 39202.'

Yes, like Britney Spears, William Faulkner and Tig...
