Schmotime by Absentee

Absentee's mini album ‘Donkey Stock' was one of the quiet delights of last year a low key blend of‘Loaded' era velvets and the world weariness of smog, together with a disarming diversion into the Grease soundtrack. For this,their debut album proper, they've poured a large helping of pop into the mix. Pop in the sense that ‘Something To Bang’ (re-recorded form ‘Donkey Stock’) fizzes like the greatest hit single that never was. And pop in the sense that most of the songs here are drunken monologues that reveal singer Dan Michaelson to be more of rake than,say, The Rakes will ever be.So, if you're a fan of pop music, in any sense, then what are waiting for? lt's‘Schmotime'.
