Eels by Larry Hirshowitz

Eels main man Mark Oliver Everett mostly lives in a muted space.
While he can come across as solemn if you’re being generous, he does have a sharp wit and the sort of self-deprecating humor that makes you think he’s doing it for the laughs.
Either way you slice it, he’s definitely not the kind of guy to wear salmon colored J.Crews, half rolled up the …

Dan Croll by Larry Hirshowitz

This week’s installment of We’ve Got It Covered is a tiny bit of a stretch since it’s more of a re-working or re-imagining of a song than a straight cover.
Still though, on his debut visit to Morning Becomes Eclectic, the U.K. artist recounted the story of how he came to find “Hello My Baby” and actually work with the legendary African a capella group …

Nick Waterhouse Covers The Seeds’ “Pushin’ Too Hard”

Posted March 19, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,872 views]

The Seeds‘ single “Pushin’ Too Hard“ was released in 1965 and although it didn’t see any time in the Billboard charts right away, it climbed to number 35 when it was re-released later that year.
I guess you could say “Pushin’ Too Hard” was a euphemism about timing.
The Seeds were Southern California through and through, ushering a new era of psych-rock and experimenting with sounds …

Jetta Covers Banks’ “Waiting Game”

Posted March 6, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,184 views]

Aside from having terrible artist names for internet searches, Banks & Jetta have one more striking similarity that’s hard to deny.
Big voices.
Yes, they’re both female and yes they’re both young and relatively new comers, but those are happenstance. The pure power generated by Jetta and the restrained energy of Banks add two more to the growing list of young talent not looking to hide …

Lo-Fang by Larry Hirshowitz

Lo-Fang’s recent in studio performance was a bit of an eye-opener.
Matthew Hemerlein is a classically trained musician who’s cerebral approach to his music re-shapes normal acoustic and electronic elements.
It’s one part Andrew Bird, a little bit Emily Wells, lots of classical influence and a mix bag of sounds from his travels around the world where he wrote most of his debut album “Blue Film”
His …

Yesterday started like this:
Me: (To the tall guy getting water) “Is there enough water in there for you? Do you need any more?”
Matt: “No- It’s all good. I think we’ll be fine”
Me: “Great. I’m Collin by the way. I’m with Morning Becomes Eclectic.”
MC: “Hi, I’m Matt. With, umm… Matt Costa.”
Later on, the irony of Matt Costa having a bit of an identity crisis with …

Eels Live On KCRW: “Wonderful, Glorious”

Posted February 20, 2013 by | 0 Comments | 1,703 views]

It can be a rare thing to have the interview portion of Morning Becomes Eclectic be just as entertaining as the artists performance but, then again, Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett or “E” is a unique man.
It’s equally out of the ordinary for an artist to have their guitar strings attached directly to their hear while they play with every emotion all at once …
