This is the first time I’ve listened to the Eels “Electro-shock blues” album since my mum passed away of cancer - I cant even remember the year anymore. Maybe 2006? I used to love that album but it all became a bit too raw after that. I remember listening to the Flaming Lips album “Soft Bulletin” around that time and feeling really uplifted by it - it helped me.
And that is the end of my story.
