Album: Hombre Lobo (2009)


  • Hombre Lobo is a concept album about a werewolf who experiences various types of desire. The anti-hero acts in different ways, for instance in this song he is gentle but in "Fresh Blood" he is menacing. Eels' main man Mark Oliver Everett explained to The Sun June 5, 2009: "They're different attempts at making a sales pitch from this (werewolf) character to the object of his desire. He's trying to convince her that he's THE guy. Sometimes he takes a more tender approach, sometimes he gets frustrated and loses his cool and things get a little ugly."
