A special acoustic version of the track “Today is The Day”—recorded during a recent sit-down with Marc Maron for his WTF Podcast—is also available now, listen HERE.

American Songwriter calls The Deconstruction “another expressive, rugged and diverse gem.” Q Magazine declares the album “a captivating return from one of indie rock’s most consistent songwriters,” giving the album 4 stars. Likewise MOJO proclaims it “Gorgeous… another EELS album to treasure” in its 4 star review. Order the album HERE.

Watch the official video to one of the EELS’ most uplifting songs to date, “Today Is The Day” directed by Gus Black and starring Mike Mitchell of Netflix’s LOVE HERE, and watch the stop-motion video for their song “Bone Dry” HERE. The video was produced by Starburns Industries’ Duke Johnson and Dino Stamatopoulos, the team behind Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa, and directed by Sofia Astrom. 

The album was recorded by E and longtime collaborators Koool G Murder and P-Boo, alongside The Deconstruction Orchestra and Choir, and produced by E with some songs produced with Mickey Petralia for the first time since 1998’s Electro-Shock Blues.

EELS have had one of the most consistently acclaimed careers in music. The ever-changing project of principal singer/songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett), EELS have released eleven studio albums since their 1996 debut, Beautiful Freak. In 2008, E published his highly acclaimed book Things the Grandchildren Should Know and starred in the award-winning Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives documentary about the search to understand his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III. EELS released their critically acclaimed The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett in 2014, and 2015 saw the release of the band’s extraordinary seventh live album Live at Royal Albert Hall, recorded at the storied London venue and accompanied by a concert film. In the same year, the band’s “Fresh Blood” served as the theme song to HBO’s “The Jinx” and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 E appeared in Judd Apatow’s Netflix original series “Love.”

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR EELS:

“They’re brilliant” –VICE

“A member of rock’s very own League of Extraordinary Gentlemen –Mojo

“His imagination and dark comic sense make him a kindred spirit of Tom Waits, with whom he has worked, but E’s sound is very much his own—an amalgam of hot-shit drum beats, world-weary piano, searing guitar when the situation calls for it, and a throaty, Menthol-smooth rasp that conveys pain without self-pity via lyrics that are remarkably plainspoken.”–Vanity Fair
