E, the mercurial voice behind Eels, has been at it under this guise for two decades now. Unless you're The Hives, your sound is bound to change a bit in that timeframe, and indeed "Tomorrow Morning," the latest Eels record, presents a more subdued version of the band. The mood is reminiscent of Greg Dulli's back-alley redemption hymns and the late Mark Linkous' sad-sack psych, with softspoken narration backed by electronic beats and lush arrangements.

It'll be fascinating to see how all this sounds live when E brings his band to the Newport this Thursday, with The Submarines in tow.
