Eels 

Hombre Lobo (Vagrant)

With a first offering of new material in four years, this LA-based outfit led by Mark Oliver Everett offers an album subtitled 12 Songs of Desire. Desire has many manifestations and it seemed like Eels had traced all the routes taken, holes fallen down and into, on previous albums. While at points this album feels like retraced steps, especially the lonelier, pleading solo tunes, the feelings are fleeting. The band makes you forget those moments with tunes that express the tension of desire and when the bounds are broken, as on crackling songs such as "Tremendous Dynamite," "What's a Fella Gotta Do" and "Fresh Blood."
