It’s the fourteenth studio album of Eels’ career.
The album’s recording saw Mark Oliver Everett resume work with producer John Parish for the first time since 2001 and that year’s Souljacker LP.
“John Parish is one of the most even-tempered, polite people I’ve ever met,” E says. “A true gentleman. Actually he’s probably THE most polite person I’ve ever met.”
“But when he gets into the studio he becomes a mad scientist. If you make music with John Parish, you get stuff no one else does. He has a really unique toolbox and musical outlook. Perhaps his politeness is a coping mechanism to keep Mr. Hyde under control when he’s out of his laboratory.”
