Absentee

Biography

Signed to Transgressive Publishing, Absentee set the gravel-toned, self-dissecting lyrics and character pieces of Dan Michaelson to the kind of Pavement-tinged Americana that gets reviewers hot under the collar.

Two exceptional albums have been released to date, ‘Schmotime' and ‘Victory Shorts' as well as the excellent mini ‘Donkey Stock'. The singles have been plentiful and inspiring including ‘Bitchstealer', ‘Boy Did She Teach You Nothing' and ‘Something to Bang'.

The band also has a number of excellent side projects: Dan Michaelson and the Coastguards, Wet Paint and the more elusive The Bronsteins.
