Dan Michaelson and the Coastguards: Distance

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

Dan Michaelson doesn’t seem like a tragic character, even if his lyrics are philosophically blue. Now resident in East London, but originally from Northhamptonshire, he is blessed with a voice that draws comparisons with Bill Callahan, Kurt Wagner and – just about – Lou Reed. He claims to have no skill as a singer but as a compromise with his own modesty, employs a confessional mumble, that sometimes extends to a low croon adding a patina of tragic to lyrics that are already heartbroken.
