Eels, Nicole Atkins
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
[BULLHORN ROCK] Any band with a drummer nicknamed Knuckles is worth your time. Doubly so when that band is Eels, Mark Everett Oliver’s mighty California-based rock machine. With nearly two decades of work under its belt, Eels continues to make waves, most recently with the alternating arena-rock fuzz and dark introspection of Wonderful, Glorious. Oliver’s grizzled vocals and solid songwriting stand strong, emulating Beck without overdoing it. Eels’ new sound is cool and sexy, dressed in searing electric-guitar hooks and punchy percussion.
