"Hombre Lobo, 12 Songs of Desire" by Eels Out Today

Hombre Lobo, out today, is the 7th record by Eels, and as always with the always interesting and eccentric frontman "E," the grey matter between your ears is captured instantaneously. Gone is the softness found on the last release, Blinking Lights and Other Revelations. Instead, E seems to have found that middle ground between the bedroom snynth of past records like Daisies of the Galaxy and the gritty dirtiness of Souljacker (more on the gritty side from what I've heard so far). For those keeping score, Kool G Murder is back as one of his sidemen. Hopefully a tour schedule will be announced shortly, and if you go, I have two words for you: Bring Earplugs. This material live is going to be LOUD.

There appears to be a "Making of" documentary coming out as well, the trailer of which is below.
