The Features are a four piece from Nashville fronted by Matthew Pelham. They release their new self-titled album on May 14. One of Nashville’s best live bands, The Features can go many musical places. They can go classic rock and they can go Krautrock. They can drop some psychedelia, then shift to southern soul. The band has created a quirky, well crafted, yet accessible collection of songs on their new record. Sometimes they sound like Spoon, or The Tragically Hip, or the Sir Douglas Quintet, but mostly they are a band with a unique musical voice worth hearing. The band starts a tour right here in Philly at Milkboy Philly on Wednesday, May 8. Below, in exhange for your e-mail address, download “This Disorder.” The song is from the band’s forthcoming album and also on an excellent sampler of music – The Muse May 2013 Sampler from American Songwriter. In addition to the song below from The Features, the collection also features songs by Phosphorescent, Son Volt, Caitlin Rose and more.
