Song Of The Day: Eels – The Magic

When Eels mastermind E sings “I get it, don’t sweat it. I’m not your cup of tea” in the opening lines of their latest single “The Magic”, I get the impression this is something he’s likely had to say about his own band.

At this point, Eels have stuck around long enough to have a cult following while also decidedly sticking to their own guns and doing whatever pleases them musically – ie. not everyone’s cup of tea.

Sticking with the tea metaphor, the blend that Eels have put together on latest single “The Magic” is certainly tasty enough to please fans of the band, who will be able to hear it live in the new year when Eels will tour in support of their forthcoming album Extreme Witchcraft.

Extreme Witchcraft is out January 28 via PIAS and the band’s own E Works Records.
