In music, is there a term for when a vocalist starts singing (solo) and then the rest of the band starts playing a bar or two later? Also, what are some other songs that use this technique?

For example, See America Right by the Mountain Goats and Big Dipper by Built to Spill
I think it's a neat little technique and I like both of those songs a lot - surely some music theorist has waxed poetic on this subject before?
