American indie rock band Eels grew out of Mark Oliver Everett’s solo efforts, records that begat a long career spent making a sad sack music juxtaposed with whimsical yet profane wit—that, and soundtracks. Debuting in 1996 with the melancholy Beautiful Freak, Eels have since produced polished power pop that grasps at the orchestral but remains in the radio-rock realm. As one critic explained, they write catchy tunes about cancer and death. Their latest, Wonderful, Glorious, returns to the Souljacker-era formula of all-out rock riffs plus primal drumming and E’s cigar-wrecked gravel voice.
