EELS

EELS have had one of the most consistently acclaimed careers in music. The ever-changing project of principal singer/songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett), EELS have released eleven studio albums since their 1996 debut, Beautiful Freak. In 2008, E published his highly acclaimed book Things the Grandchildren Should Know and starred in the award-winning Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives documentary about the search to understand his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III. EELS released their critically acclaimed The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett in 2014, and 2015 saw the release of the band’s extraordinary seventh live album Live at Royal Albert Hall, recorded at the storied London venue and accompanied by a concert film. In the same year, the band’s “Fresh Blood” served as the theme song to HBO’s “The Jinx” and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 E appeared in Judd Apatow’s Netflix original series “Love.”

“They’re brilliant” –VICE

“A member of rock’s very own League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”–Mojo

“His imagination and dark comic sense make him a kindred spirit of Tom Waits, with whom he has worked, but E’s sound is very much his own—an amalgam of hot-shit drum beats, world-weary piano, searing guitar when the situation calls for it, and a throaty, Menthol-smooth rasp that conveys pain without self-pity via lyrics that are remarkably plainspoken.”–Vabity Fair
