As you probably know, I wrote a biography of the band Eels. It arrives in stores in June in the U.S., but folks who have ordered it through Amazon have already started receiving theirs. So with the book's arrival imminent, it's probably only natural that I've been thinking about E and his music a lot lately. I decided to feature a song that may be lesser-known. It's called "I Need Some Sleep," and it was included on the group's 2008 best-of collection, Meet the Eels: Essential Eels, Vol. 1. The song is quintessential Eels: dreamy, wistful, incredibly melodic. Hope you enjoy.
