Goddamn right, it's a beautiful day
Today's band is another one of my favorites, just missing out on my Top 5. The Eels have been around in one way or another for quite a while, since 1991. The band started out as a one-man show, E, but then as his music grew in popularity, he put together a live band for touring. It's all there in their bio on the website, and probably a much better read than I could put together. Their myspace has some great songs to get started on if you're unfamiliar, including my favorite song, "Mr. E's Beautiful Blues." I didn't notice at first, but you can scroll down to a fifth song, and there it is, a very fitting song for the past few days. So listen, love, and smile.
