THE FEATURES are the best modern pop band you’ve never heard.

Period.

The Features sent me their new EP, Contrast, along with a large collection of photocopied press clippings. They didn’t need all the hype. I’ve been in love with this band since I heard the first cymbal crashes in “Blow It Out,” one of the highest played songs in my iPod and one of the greatest singles of ’05. The band makes perfect indie pop: Harmony, hooks, sunny vocals . . . If you’re happy and you know it, you must be listening to The Features.

Contrast is more of the same. Flawless rock and roll suitable for clubs and arenas alike. It doesn’t get any better than this. Note to the band: If you spit, cough, hock a loogie, or fart into a microphone, I wanna hear it. I’ll post anything you send me, as long as you keep pumping out real shit like this. Awesome.

Readers, hop to e-music and cop Contrast. Or go to their site to get it. I don’t care how you go, but go, now!
