New album: EXTREME WITCHCRAFT,
Released: 28th January 2022
Everett about working with the album’s producer John Parish (best known for collaborating with PJ Harvey): “John Parish is one of the most even-tempered, polite
people I’ve ever met. A true gentleman. Actually he’s probably THE most polite person
I’ve ever met. But when he gets into the studio he becomes a mad scientist. If you make
music with John Parish, you get stuff no one else does. He has a really unique toolbox
and musical outlook. Perhaps his politeness is a coping mechanism to keep Mr. Hyde
under control when he’s out of his laboratory.”
Uncut Magazine (British music monthly): “Extreme Witchcraft snaps and snarls
more than usual, but wit, tunes and third-degree self-awareness continue to serve
the post-grunge, Randy Newman, well.” Score: 7/10.
Turn Up The Volume: Eels made another Eels album sounding like an Eels album.
But as Mark Oliver Everett moves and grooves, rocks and rolls like in the good days
Extreme Witchcraft feels like he’s having fun, although you never know for sure with
his capricious state of mind.
