UNNATURAL HELPERS: Self-titled: LP

Unnatural Helpers might just be my new favorite band. The songs on here are herky-jerky but not quirky, full of fuzzed-out guitar and are all super catchy. While they don’t sound like them, the closest thing I can think of to compare them to would be The Intelligence, although these songs are way hookier with more riffs than you can shake a stick at. Sometimes, I hear a little Mark Arm in the inflection of the vocalist, but they don’t sound anything like his band. The songs are all short, cut straight to the point, and are, ultimately, super addictive. I must hear more from them. Absolutely recommended.
