eels wonderful glorious 628 New Music: Eels   New Alphabet

Mark Oliver Everett, aka Eels, continues to dole out some grimy rock and roll with “New Alphabet”, the latest single from his forthcoming album Wonderful, Glorious. Akin to the Talkboy-esque production of “Peach Blossoms”, Everett methodically sings lines like “When the world stops making sense / I’ll make a new alphabet” through layers of distortion, while in the background a guitar lackadaisically chugs and gentle strings swoop elegantly upward. Stream it below (via Spinner.com).
