The musical structures that support these snapshots are serviceable enough, designed not to overshadow lines like "Judge made it clear/ I can't be near you" (from the affecting "Restraining Order Blues"). But the tone remains even-keeled, almost upbeat, especially on the jaunty "Saturday Morning" and a handful of peppier, mid-tempo numbers like the peaceful "Love of the Loveless." On one of these, E sings "I am fine, I am resigned to this/I am a lone wolf," perfectly summing up Shootenanny!'s central motif.
Eels perform at Variety Playhouse Thurs, Aug. 7. $15.
