Altijd fijn wanneer een album een week voordat het in de winkel ligt als via de 3voor12 Luisterpaal te beluisteren is. Zo ook het nieuwe EELS album: The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett is een prachtig, ingetogen album en alweer de elfde plaat die E en zijn band uitbrengen.

Over het nieuwe EELS album: Before recording WONDERFUL, GLORIOUS, the last EELS album to be released, EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett called the band together to record a group of highly personal songs at his Los Feliz, California studio.
