“Unnatural Helpers are one of my picks for new bands to watch in 2006. They’re a supergroup of local underground heavies, as their members have played with the Dipers, the Tight Bros, and the Pulses, which makes their lineage thicker than bongwater and a lot more fun to ingest. ‘Gettin’ Classy,’ a track off the Helpers’ five-song demo, blends shrill, ice-pick guitar riffs with bass lines that move like river sludge, while ‘Mr. Children’ whirls off-kilter like a cleaned-up Intelligence song.” - Jennifer Maerz, The Stranger

Check out a couple songs from their debut self released EP, Unnatural Helpers...

Gettin’ Classy - (MP3)
Cardboard Swords - (MP3)

Doesn’t look like they have any dates scheduled, but you can keep an eye out for tour dates at their MySpace page and stream some additional songs from their website.
