One of the great unexpected pleasures of early 2010 is Choosing Sides, a three-song EP from Kansas City-area band Hidden Pictures. The collection of pristine indie pop with deep-setting hooks has earned a well-deserved rave from the local press, and it's available on iTunes for a measly $2.97. Really, you can't afford not to buy it.
But if you don't trust me, head to their myspace page, where you can hear all three tracks for free. Go. Now.
