TunaHelpers come from Austin and bring with them a lunatic legacy appropriate to the state that gave us Roky Erickson. Don't let the quartet's lilting vocals, and violin fool you. These gals are loco. Whether celebrating Florida's state animal ("Manatee"), the wonders of a "Bicycle"(with a barely concealed licentiousness)or taping feces to an ex's door ("Restraining Order"), there's a joyous play in their music. -Chris Parker
