Why do we like this?
Last November, Spoon frontman Britt Daniels, Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner, and The New Bomb Turks' Sam Brown got together during their respective group's downtime and played an impromptu practice session at a rehearsal studio in Santa Monica. After Wolf Parade called it quits, the three officially became Divine Fits in early 2012, and their debut album A Thing Called Divine Fits was released August 28 on Merge records.

Widely billed as a "supergroup," the band clearly functions as a natural collaborative. While they retain elements of their own bands, the final product is something all its own: a sharp sound, brooding with electricity.

The tightly packed album opens with the pulsive "My Love Is Real" before the jilted "Flaggin A Ride." The time change linking the fast-paced "What Gets You Alone" and groovy but still charged "Would That Not Be Nice" seem to glue the entire album together, while the guitar solos on later tracks like "Shivers" tear it apart at its seems.

Though Boeckner's Wolf Parade is no longer active, Daniels promises Divine Fits will remain a "real band," even as Spoon continues to work on new songs long distance.

Divine Fits have announced a slew of upcoming dates, including a pair of shows supporting the Black Keys in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve December 30 and 31 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
