Eels Say New Carrey Flick Not All Lame

 

Eels use ‘Yes Man’ to sneak
out a new song

 

By Brian Creech

 

 

I wasn’t going to watch the newest Jim Carrey movie, Yes Man
I’m a busy man, with more important things to do, like breathe or wash
dishes.  I also had thought the man sold
all of his cool points to the devil when he donned a pair of green tights to
star as the Riddler.  And then my ears
perked up and I started to see “the obnoxious one” in a new light as I learned
that yes Man is soundtracked nearly
entirely with classic Eels songs.

 

 

Mixed among the classics is a new song entitled “Man Up.”  This is the first bit of new music to be
released by the Eels since 2005’s “Blinking Lights and Other Revelations.”  It sounds older and a bit more lovelorn than
we’ve grown to expect, but it still slides along nicely with other Eels
classics like “Fresh Feeling” and “Trouble with Dreams.”  The eager and curious can find the song at
www.myspace.com/eels.

 

 

Fans of Zooey Deschanel’s recent singing career can also rejoice.
 The earnest vixen-cum-cabaret
singer-cum-indie goddess sings on four songs with her band Munchausen By
Proxy.  While it may not be a “She and
Him: Volume 2,”  it is still enough to
tide over the idle.  The Yes Man soundtrack drops on December
9th.
