D Charles Speer is the alter-ego of Dave Shuford who you may also know for his more out-there work in Rhyton and NNCK, but D Charles Speer & The Helix showcases his more accessible side. He's got a rich, deep singing voice which fits perfectly into the countrified Americana twang which graces this LP, taking cues from bands like The Allman Brothers and even the Grateful Dead.

'The Heated Hand' is particularly tickling me today, it's a '50s style country boogie number that bounces along like a happy puppy, mostly instrumental with some sweet Speedy West-ish slide guitar and some cheeky ragtime piano. Ordinarily I struggle with this kind of straightforward country rock but there's enough variety and weirdness woven into it that it's going down real smooth today, it gets a bit jammy sometimes but not in a particularly psychedelic or difficult way.

There's a really laid-back, warm feel to the whole recording; enjoyable and irreverent country good times.
