Happy hump day to you! We got a cool album going on between my eareums, something nice and rather depressing (considering it’s “their most optimistic record to date”) on a late & hot summer’s day, Tomorrow Morning by EELS!

This may be their most warm & happy and whatnot record of the trilogy or discography or whatever, but there’s still this undertone of melancholy, even when he’s barking out “MY BABY LOOOVES ME!” as he follows it up with “unlikely but true” or “and she’s smarter than you”, etc, yeah, real happy & optimistic there buddy!

Though “Spectacular Girl” is nearly uber-sweet & sugary bubble gum.

So, even though Mr. Eels seems to be finally pulling out of the slump of a broken relationship, getting laid, and what not, there’s still issues floating about. The result is a complicated emotional album that is quite relatable for all the less-than-arrogant misfits of the world. You know, the people who live under the umbrella of music obsessions that eventually lead to starting a music blog and stuff, etc, etc.

Oh wait.
