New Music Monday: Divine Fits

Here’s a super-indie supergroup for ya (unless you’ve never heard of Wolf Parade or New Turk Bombs. Then it’s just Britt Daniel from Spoon’s new side-project).

A Thing Called Divine Fits drops on August 28th, but you may have already heard this single on your coolest local radio station (ie. XRT). “My Love is Real” is moveable, robot-able without being too heavy. Where Skrillex would have a stroke deciding where to drop the beat, this synth/electro-bass song marches on merrily.

The style or movement of the song isn’t much of a departure from Spoon, but the sound may surprise you. Until you get to the sexy shake of the other Divine Fits song bouncing around internet — “Would That Not Be Nice.” That one sounds like Spoon.
