Into The Labyrinth

 

A rare cool August morning. The last day of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Channeling MEB on this Sunday morning’s run as he goes for the gold in the marathon. Into The Labyrinth is the perfect musical accompaniment. To finish is to win. I urge you to hear it all the way through. Enjoy the stream!

When gazing at the Eels 1996 debut from a distance you are lulled into a trance by its somber alluring pop melody. You can’t take your eyes off Beautiful Freak, with its Keane style cover which mask elements of melancholy and despair that run through this set of 12 masterfully disturbing songs. Singer/songwriter E, (Mark Oliver Everett) sets the tone for the first and next several offerings by the Eels with a well crafted, remarkably addictive pour. Enjoy the wickedly good stream.
