Song of the Week X: Unnatural Helpers’ ‘Sunshine/Pretty Girls’Each week A&E reporter Matthew R. Perrine not-so-subtly suggests a song you should know by heart.
Each week I not-so-subtly suggest a song you should know by heart. For this very special tenth edition, I chose “Sunshine/Pretty Girls,” a muscular firecracker from the Seattle-area quartet Unnatural Helpers.
Despite a runtime of less than two minutes, these Pacific Northwest kids make quite the impression here. I’d especially recommend this blistering post-rock track to fans of Les Savy Fav, Oranges Band (if you swap out the sunshine for fog) or Dean Whitmore’s other associated groups: Welcome, the Dipers and, my personal favorite, the Intelligence. This is some truly exciting stuff.
Anyway, if you like what you hear (and you will), learn more about this must-know-now group at www.myspace.com/unnaturalhelpers.
