December begs to get to the bottom of those review piles, to hit those gems that were hiding among the detritus and Unnatural Helpers' Land Grab is most definitely one of those gems. The Seattle group hits hard with classic lined guitar jams backed with a fully formed melodic chaser. The record is large and live, sprung with energy and weathered with enough whiskey wrung, life-lived vocals from Dean Whitmore that they never feel like some new kid's toe-dipped experiments with garage rock. Hardly Art know the territory and they've wrestled another (destined to be) undersung nugget with this one but you needn't let it have that fate. Pick this up and shake a few windows this winter.
