[pitchfork.com] Back in June, Eels released Hombre Lobo: 12 Songs of Desire, their first album of new material in nearly half a decade. Reviewing the platter, Pitchfork's Ian Cohen said, "Considering [Eels mastermind Mark] Everett's prolific nature, restless manner with aliases, and disdain of the music industry, you'd figure the internet age would result in an outpouring of more Eels material than ever before." Well, it looks like that outpouring is about to get a belated start. Eels will have another full-length out before the weather gets warm again.
On January 19, Eels will release an album called End Times. Everett-- better known as E-- recorded most of the album's 14 tracks in his basement studio. This marks Everett's quickest-ever between-albums turnaround.
Eels recently released a video for their song "That Look You Gave That Guy", starring the ridiculously beautiful "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi, who totally kisses Everett at the end. So, uh, there's that.
