Eels – “Peach Blossom” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Between 2009 and 2010, Mark Oliver Everett's Eels released a trilogy of full-lengths in rapid succession, but the project has been mostly silent since then. Next year, however, Everett and Eels return with a new LP, Wonderful, Glorious, recorded at Everett’s new studio in Los Feliz, CA, which will be followed by a three-month tour… More »

Eels – “Baby Loves Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

The previously "Looking Up” appears toward the close of Eels' Tomorrow Morning. The endlessly optimistic "Baby Loves Me" shows up toward the beginning, immediately following "Spectacular Girl." No matter where things fall on the 14-track collection, E's staying positive. As mentioned, the 14-song collection completes the trilogy that began with hairy Hombre LoboMore »

Eels – “Spectacular Girl” Video

Eels put out Hombre Lobro in 2009, six months later followed it up with the particularly bummed out End Times. The flood of material's intended to be a trilogy, it's concluding chapter coming this summer with Tomorrow Morning. You've heard "Looking Up," here's the video for the spacious and soothing keyboard groove cut "Spectacular… More »

Eels – “Looking Up”

"Looking Up" appears toward the close of Eels forthcoming Tomorrow Morning. The 14-song collection completes the trilogy that began with Hombre Lobo and End Times. As far as "Looking Up," the track's a soulful hand-clapper worthy it and the album's dawn-of-a-new-day name. More »

New Eels – “End Times” (Stereogum Premiere)

E's back with a new self-produced album next week. We've been making some noise about it -- it's his best since Daisies. "End Times" is the track that gives the collection its name, a three-minute distillation of the record's sublime despondence. It's stripped and raw -- just a scraggly weatherbeaten voice, a guitar,… More »

New Eels – “In My Younger Days” (Stereogum Premiere)

This new Eels song, from the forthcoming self-produced End Times (the one with the downcast Adrian Tomine-drawn cover) made me think about Electro-Shock Blues for the first time in ages. It has a stripped down, raw feeling to it (both musically and emotionally) that you'd find on the 1998 collection's best, most intimate moments. The… More »

New Eels – “Little Bird”

It took Eels four years to follow up Blinking Lights And Other Revelations with 2009's Hombre Lobo LP. E filled that stretch by releasing useless trinkets and soundtracking Zooey Deschanel movies, but clearly that time left him with a backlog of material fit for album-format consumption. The forthcoming End Times is out… More »

The ‘Gum Drop CVIII: Hear New Lightning Bolt, Win An Eels Box Set & Poster

Lightning Bolt's fifth album Garden Of Earthly Delights (Load, 10/13) opens like a riot with "Sound Guardians." It's the perfect place to get acquainted with the collection, so we asked drummer Brian Chippendale about it. You've heard "Colossus," now hear Chippendale talk about how he and Brian Gibson arrive at song titles (hint:… More »

New Eels Video – “That Look You Give That Guy”

The video is fine: a subdued black and white thing about a dinner date, and also there is a pup in it. But do you kind of get the feeling that Padma Lakshmi doesn't say "no" a lot? More »

New Eels Video – “In My Dreams”

Continuing with the werewolf theme of Hombre Lobo, which happens to mean werewolf, Eels bring some hirsute lycanthropy to the gorgeously shot video for "In My Dreams." E starred as a furry, howling stalker in the red-tinted clip for "Fresh Blood," but he cedes the claws to a young boy in the suburbs, whose… More »

New Eels Video – “Fresh Blood” (Stereogum Premiere)

When we posted a link to the Eel's new single "Fresh Blood," we made sure to mention the name of the new album Hombre Lobo means "werewolf." Continuing directly along that dark, creepy, and hairy course, the Jesse Dylan-directed video for "Fresh Blood"'s shot at night with a red haze that looks bloody i… More »

New Eels – “Man Up”

The new Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel film Yes Man features nine Eels songs, including the new track "Man Up," which is currently streaming at MySpace. On top of Eels -- E's other tracks are all previously released "classics" -- there are four songs by Munchausen By Proxy, Deschanel's Von Iva-helmed band in the… More »

Eels’ E On The PBS Documentary About His Father

Mark Oliver Everett's father was Hugh Everett, the physicist who pioneered the many-worlds theory before dying of a heart attack at 51. Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives, airing tomorrow on PBS, is a documentary focusing on Hugh, "so devastated by the scientists' dismissal and scorn of his work ... that he withdrew almost entirely into hi… More »

E From Eels Talks About Ten Years Of His Hard Work, That’s All

Eels Dropped by last week with one of their useful trinkets from Useless Trinkets: B-Sides, Rarities, Soundtracks And Unreleased, one of two releases for E's band in '08 (the other being Meet The Eels, a best-of). It's over a decade of work E's logged now, so he's entitled to reminisce over his career, either… More »
