The Twilight Saga has exactly two things that keep the films from being absolute torture. The first is Ashley Greene in all her pixie-hotness, and the second is that there really are some excellent bands that end up on the soundtracks. Case in point, the Features were featured recently in Breaking Dawn in the form of their song "From Now On." The cut, like most of what we've heard from the Tennessee natives, is bleakly optimistic, like a couple trying to achieve simultaneous orgasm on a plane with both engines dead. The speed of the track's drum hurls Matt Pelham's falsetto from the twang of indie guitars to total musical elegance. You might want to catch the Features while they're still playing venues the size of Fitz, since it's not going to be long before they graduate to less intimate engagements, thanks to that sparkle-vamp push.
