How about a cool video from Unnatural Helpers?

Unnatural Helpers is a Seattle band comprised of drummer/singer Dean Whitmore and apparently whoever's calendar is clear on that particular evening. They have a lovely raw noise that's sort of a cross between late-era Bumpyface and the Unicorn Knuckles. To be candid, I am pretty sure no band ever has used either of those names. Do you remember those Tool videos for the songs on "Undertow"? Well, I don't know if this was done by the same guy, but if so, thanks to the warden who let him out to start scaring little children again.

"Girl in the Window"

That tune is ample evidence of the awesomeness of their 2010 album Cracked Love and Other Drugs, a 15 track, 26 minute exercise in garage. Here's another, earlier tune with that urbane UH vibe, aptly entitled "Gettin' Classy".
