In light of Memorial Day, OurVinyl thought to pay tribute to an American rock band that is part of everyone’s musical catalog even if the album is not owned. In other words, whether it was the closing credits to an old television show or a featured track on a myriad of American films such as Shrek or American Beauty, Eels’s tracks have that comforting and familiar sentiment to them.
Originated by head man E (Marc Oliver Everett), Eels have taken many forms over a career that has spanned over two decades with members constantly changing in both the studio and live on stage. But amid this carousel of band members and the ever-changing stance of modern music, Eels still continue to create fresh and timeless tunes in light of an indy band.
Today we listen to “Fresh Feeling”, a track that debuted nearly a decade ago but still has the poignancy and merit of a worthy track today. With the sensual vocals matching perfectly to the layered strings that accompany him, E lifts this tune to a higher and serene state. Enjoy!Eels – Fresh Feeling by quietriot79
