A Thing Called Divine Fits


Divine Fits


Amoeba Review

It’s consistent. If that sounds like a backhanded compliment, it isn’t; there have been plenty of albums I thought I loved lately that ultimately had just a couple of great tracks and the rest duds, while the debut by Divine Fits, a supergroup of sorts featuring Spoon’s Britt Daniels, former Handsome Furs and Wolf Parade singer Dan Boeckner, New Bomb Turks’ Sam Brown, and Alex Fischel on keyboards, is chockfull of quality. That should be expected judging by Divine Fits’ memebers’ other bands, which have always tended toward consistency over flashy singles. And so, A Thing Called Divine Fits plays much as one might expect, if familiar with its players previous material, and that’s a good thing. “Flaggin a Ride” and “Would That Not Be Nice” feature some of Daniel’s most balls-to-the-wall vocals in years, bouncing along with the kind of grooves you’d find in a Spoon song, yet more aggressive in attack, perhaps given Boeckner and Brown’s involvement. For his part, Boeckner, who it’s great to have back, given his other bands’ hiatuses, blows it out of the water on sexy opener “My Love is Real,” sort of an electrified, modern take on Hall & Oates. It’s a rare thing to have a supergroup in which if the members declared it to be their new primary focus, that would be just fine. Read More
