Melancholic Crooner Does It Again – Here’s EELS And His New LP ‘EARTH TO DORA’

31 October 2020

Band: EELS (Los Angeles)
Album: EARTH TO DORA – 13th LP
Released: 30 October 2020

NME says: “Mark ‘E’ Everett’s 13th album under his melancholic indie moniker is a life-
worn collection that charts the rise and fall of a relationship, exuding fragile hope… Eels’
most complete and self-contained record, arguably the epitome of their ouvre and a record
that places E – in his own gruff, xylophone-toting way –alongside the great downtrodden romantics: Cohen; Rufus Wainwright; Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields; Nick Cave. Just the
sort of bullheaded optimism we need, in fact, to see us through the cold winter ahead.”

Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Pick your favorite bottle of wine. Dim the lights. Relax on
your couch and press play with the remote control. Let Eels entertain you with his
break-up reveries, mixed emotions meditations and melancholic nightdreams. You’ll
feel better afterward because, after all, it’s about other people’s misery. That’s what
the E crooner accomplishes over and over again.

Key singles: Who You Say You Are / Baby Let’s Make It Real

– WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE –

EELS Wonders ‘ARE WE ALRIGHT AGAIN’

New sonic impulses

17 September 2020

After sharing three new songs over the past weeks Mark Oliver Everett
confirms finally that EELS will have a new album out called EARTH TO DORA
on 30th October.

“These songs came about just before the pandemic hit and changed everything. I’m
hoping they can be, maybe, kind of soothing or something. To hear songs dealing with
things we are dreaming about getting back to. Or maybe people are dealing with some of
the topics right now as well. Just one song was done in the thick of the early pandemic days,
‘Are We Alright Again’ which is kind of a quarantine daydream I desperately needed to have.”
said Everett in a statement about the new record.
