Monolith Festival > Lollapalooza – And Here’s Why…

It only takes one. And that catalyst for an eventful weekend is a MiS favorite: The Features, who are proclaiming on their Twitter, of their grand appearance at Monolith. Their latest LP, Some Kind of Salvation is what anyone who’s witnessed this TN pop outfit live knows they were always capable of on record – relentless energy bundled up into lighthearted pop numbers. The greatness this LP exuded lyrically speaking – Temporary Blues continues to resonate – and the superb craftsmanship instrumentally speaking, caused me to purchase all forms of this album. Thanks to the CD, my bathroom’s boombox and its morning routine’s use, always had a smile on its face, no matter the ungodly hour. Like a beaming trophy, my double-sided LP rests firmly next to its older – by 10 years next weekbrother. And those digital files, they’ve helped to secure the number three spot on my coveted list.

Red Rocks continues to showcase acts I spin routinely. While Lollapalooza has an extensive lineup – even a TN act – Monolith has the one act from TN meriting any type of showcasing: The Features. Nothing has changed; Tennessee is still nothing to fuck with.

FLUX EDIT : : Speaking of the other aforementioned TN act, the Features were recently signed to a new label imprint of Bug Music, of which the Kings of Leon are intimately involved.  The deal will generate better distribution efforts for Some Kind of Salvation, which will be available in stores on July 28th.

Experience the greatness of two songs destined to be dropped at an elevation of almost 5800 feet.

    By my count, it’s 2009, thus making BWG ten years older than SKoS.

    Great news for The Features re: Bug Music’s new imprint (and Monolith.) I’m glad they stuck with it. It’s very strange to me though that Bug Music is starting a label at this time….as the press release indicates, they’re a legendary publishing administrator. When I interned at Mammoth I believe it was the Squirrel Nut Zippers that forced me to work some with Bug Music. It was the first I had heard of them at the time. Publishing is a whole other world.
