Still Lost, Volume 1 : Download

With the impending arrival of their new album, Wilderness, available June 5th through Serpents and Snakes/BMG Rights/RED, The Features have partnered with Noisetrade.com to give fans new and old a special treat. Still Lost, Volume 1 is a collection of demos, unreleased material and alternate versions that spans the last decade. Download of the album is free.

About The Features:

“Since we were kids, the only thing any of us ever wanted to do was play music. We aren’t really happy doing anything other than that.  At this point, it’s gone on so long that I don’t know what else we would do.  It’s all we know.” -singer/guitarist Matt Pelham

Since releasing The Beginning EP in 2003, The Features have assembled quite the catalog of accomplishments, spanning single releases on the UK’s trendsetting Fierce Panda label, two well-received albums, and a long history of tours as headliners as well as supporting such like-minded artists as Manchester Orchestra and The Black Keys. As their new album Wilderness demonstrates, the spirit of musical adventure continues to both define and motivate The Features.

Wilderness quickly establishes the Nashville-based combo as one of the most exciting and imaginative bands working today.  Songs like “Another One” and “Fats Domino” are marvels of pop ingenuity, animated by vivid lyrics, unshakable hooks, and experimental soul.  Wilderness is an amalgamation of influences and inspirations – spanning elements of Krautrock, indie, psychedelia, and classic AOR – to conjure up The Features’ own inimitable, indescribable sound.
