Sundown on the sorry day
By night lights, the children pray
I know you're probably getting ready for bed
Beautiful woman, get out of my head

I'm so tired of the same old crud
Sweet baby, I need fresh blood
Ho, ow

The moon shines in the autumn sky
Growing cold as the leaves all die
I'm more alone than I've ever been
Help me out of the shape I'm in

After the fires, before the flood
My sweet baby, I need fresh blood
Ho, howoo

Whatever trepidation you may feel
In your heart, you know it's not real
In a moment of clarity
Summon an act of charity

You've got to pull me out of this mud
Sweet baby, I need fresh blood
Ho, howooo
Ho, howooo

Sounds like the loudness wars strike again…

Sometimes wondered if Bill runs heavily compressed songs through any kind of process to make them more 'listenable'

A solid 6, but bumped it up to an 8 because it reminds me of the outstanding HBO mini-series "The Jinx"....

I find the Eels to be more electrifying.

Most of the nowdays bands are bad. This band isn't bad at all.
JINX!
Nice, very edgy, modern, but not fad-ish or poppy.   I always buy this guy's albums since he is such an independent who does what he likes with no concern for record companies.
Wooh!
wow, what a good song!
Love the cubano cigarro album art!

NICE HALLOWEEN TUNE
 
Indeed! I'll add this to my list. Dead Man's Party, Re: Your Brains and now Fresh Blood. Sweet.
I wasn't sure who this was. When I looked, it is The Eels. I'm not surprised. I like so much of their stuff even when I don't know it is their stuff.
NICE HALLOWEEN TUNE
that initial drum sounded to me like it had been sampled from "down under", the tone and metallic quality.

while writing this, it hasn't inspired me to say anything else except "Beautiful freak" album was a 9.  I bought the plastic.

ahh, its over.   hmmm,    no,   didn't lift me, grab me or even hold me.

4 ... and a bit.

Oh, yeah! This reminds me of when it came out...jamming to it on my iPod as I cruised the new and incredible Tokyo MidTown complex, gleaming towers of steel and glass right on the edge of Roppongi...where the hip met to trip and anything could happen...killer food, amazing bars, often with cigars, booze and views at the Ritz Carlton up on the 54th Floor, and fantastic non-stop club action all night long... Fresh Blood & PARTY was the mood and drove us all mad at the time...This still sounds rocking to me, and I love his new stuff too! 

 
well now. I wish I had been -there- instead of wherever it was that I was at the time. 
Great song. I always like me some eels.

I saw on Nova or something that his physicist dad posited a (the?) theory of parallel multiverses.

Eels makes great techno music.

I could see that but I imagine the list of songs which would prevent vomiting if one were "inebriated...on the verge of passing out and feeling queasy" would be a shorter list.

yes I only hear Eels here on rp, and a lot of it seems.

Is it a coincidence that the cover dude has a ZZ  Top beard, and they had an LP Tres Hombres?
Sounds like PJ Harvey in a lower register. 
i like it. i bet they played it on True Blood at some point.

The album is called Hombre Lobo, and he howls like a wolf. Unless the OP was hearing some obscure potato reference I missed.
Zombie movie soundtrack moment...

Our proverbial scared couple during the zombie apocalypse running down an abandoned urban street.  Street lights flickering faintly, giving flashes of the shambling freaks on their slow pursuit...

I'd suggest a vampire movie, but that's too obvious.  Only something lame like Twilight would be so blatant about it, not that anyone that would be involved with that crap would have good enough taste to have ever heard this song.

{#Roflol} It's a 9 from the Nottingham jury, which finds it hard to believe that this funfest comes from the usually bland and boring Eels. And what a great howl - ahoooooooooooo!! :o)

Although we have a fundamental disagreement over this song, I had to push away from the desk so I could laugh without spraying my monitor. . .

This is without a doubt the most overplayed song ever on RP!  Come on...every day when I hear this song AGAIN, I feel like I'm listening to commercial radio.

RP is usually better than this!
Guh.......
Overplayed.  It was good the first few times, but the daily recycle is wearing its uniqueness out.
The guitar riff always reminds me of a Los Lobos song off of Kiko.  I'll have to think about which one it is.

Ya know, I'm normally not a fan of comments like this one, but I have to agree with you. This is one of those songs that is good to hear about once a month at most.

aahooooooo....reminds me of something

I STILL LOVE this song!  The video is so weird, I'm hesitant to share it, but I listen to it with abandon in the privacy of my office and on iPod!
Yeah!!! AuuuuuuuuuuuuuUuuUUuuuUUUUUUUUu hahahahaha Auuuuuuauuuuauuauauauauauuuuuu
this keeps cool listen after listen...

Kinda Morphine-y
Not sure why this track is in heavy rotation....  

My hovercraft is full of eels!
I was going to get this CD anyhow, but after hearing this song I may need to get it before Haloween!!!!!

I LOVE this song


    {#Arrowd} definitely creepy!  But in a good way ... {#Devil_pimp}
the more i hear this the more i like it...its kinda creepy but good...anyone else?

Great song! Scared the shit outta me!
I dig this a little more with each listen.

Still love it though....
finally bought this song.  I stop everytime I hear it thinking, I've got to have this!
I thought that WHOO!!! sounded familiar....
I dig this a lot. 8.

I've been a huge fan of the Eels since their first album, and this song is SHOCKINGLY good.  The beat is driving, the bridges are disarming, and the peaks are intense.  I can't wait to hear the rest of the new album!
I will never be able to listen to the coyotes howling at night without thinking of this song .... {#Dancingbanana}

guy writes some cool/broadly insightful music (I think)
"I bought some rock star ashes, from the back of Rolling Stone".  Good enough (maybe not so insightful, but sort of funny)
That song got canned in the LRC (Tiger in my tank).  His dad came up with the theory of parallel universes.  I have mentioned that before but it is just so outrageous I have to interject it again.

How many paws does your poodle have?

Long time since I heard some new Eels stuff, but this sounds pretty good.

This is a fine example of 'CrapsVille' have never had to turn volume on RP before. Bad mark there RP  


THIS, as they say, is 'the jam'.  (8)
The Eels just have 'it'

I don't think he's referring to Castro; I think the Lone Wolf finally realized he was starving.

agree.  very cool

I really like this guy.  His dad came up with the theory of parallel universes (not sure what he called it).  I saw the documentary on Nova and he (EELS guy) is a very personable and yet effdup guy.  He went to the pentagon to see this auditorium where his dad used to lecture and said "I can't believe it was so easy for me to get clearance to the pentagon because (really quiet like)  I am loco"

Wow. Cool.
