A musical project that weds a rich variety of off-kilter pop influences with deeply personal lyrics often obsessing over the darker sides of human experience, Eels is the rubric used by singer, songwriter, and musician Mark Oliver Everett (aka E) for the music he creates with a rotating group of collaborators. Everett has been the sole constant throughout the Eels' career, making music that's daring and emotionally revealing, sometimes sounding warm and organic, sometimes deliberately discordant and full of noisy textures, but most often rooted in a melodic sense that manages to shine through even when the arrangements turn up the static. 1996's Beautiful Freak, Eels' debut album, was one of their strongest exercises in bent indie pop, 1998's Electro-Shock Blues was a dark and deeply introspective (but often beautiful) meditation on loss and grief, 2001's Souljacker turned up the guitars and volume on his tunes, 2006's With Strings: Live at Town Hall captured a unique concert with a eclectic ensemble, and 2018's The Deconstruction saw Everett digging into his interest in electronic music.
