Eels

Beginner's Luck
Hombre Lobo- 12 Songs Of Desire 2009 via Vagrant Records
a note about this track

For a decade plus, Mark Oliver Everett, the auteur behind this raggedy power trio, has been singing bay-at-the-moon stompers and ballads in a voice twisted by heartsickness into something not quite human. Everett's songwriting hasn't always kept pace with his musical and literary ambitions. But these tales of frustrated desire are vividly sketched, with the Eels delivering muddy roadhouse rockers.
