It would be a safe bet to say that, at least in Nashville's local rock scene, 2011 was the year of The Features. Over the past 12 months they made their return to national television with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, headlined the Nashville Cream party at Third Man Records and somehow wound up on a Twilight soundtrack. But, most importantly, they released Wilderness, a record we ranked as the No. 4 local album of the year, against tough competition like William Tyler and Nikki Lane. If 2011 was the year of The Features, 2012 is destined to be their victory lap — chugging ahead with the infectious power-pop that established them as a local-rock institution. If there's one thing to take from the gallons upon gallons of ink we've spilled about the group, it's that even after 15 years in the game, they're the most consistently on-point band our city has to offer.
