"Needless to say, Dent has my rapt attention for everything it does from here on out. This is some of the craziest, most experimental fun music that I've heard in a while, it somehow holds up as pop, but it is way out on the fringe, in the best lo-fi way possible. "1996" literally sounds like it came from 1996 -- think Pavement and Sebadoh mixed with Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd. I'm not kidding. The other side of the single is the equally fascinating "Shift," which is psychedelic pop in a Flaming Lips way. This music makes me dizzy and I expect to see trails at any moment. These two songs have made this entire week worth living for; I simply can't get enough of Dent." - Mitchell Hillman, Phoenix New Times
Shades McCool
Shades McCool
Shades McCool is the comedic alter ego of Tony Gidlund, of Fever Sleeves and Rob Crow's Gloomy Place. His act sometimes involves hard rock versions of local-centric TV theme songs for merchants like like Bob Baker’s Auto Group, Mossy Nissan, Drew Ford, and Toyota of Escondido.

Gidlund as McCool has been backed at various times by drummer Brian Garbark (Modern Rifles), bassist Daryl Thompson (Modern Rifles), and keyboardist Taylor Semingson. A debut EP was released in 2016, collecting The First Four Demos, recorded with Rob Crow and featuring guests Ben Johnson and Adam Gimbel.

The Shades McCool single "The San Diegan National Anthem" was produced with Ben Moore and Nick Reinhart and released in May 2017.
