A Thing Called Divine Fits - MERGE
FILTER Grade: 77%
By Adam Valeiras on August 30, 2012
A supergroup is only as interesting as the collection of bands it stems from. As such, Divine Fits and their debut record are fascinating; not so much in meaning and concept, rather in the way the two songwriters, Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and Britt Daniel (Spoon), work each of their many notable songwriting styles into every song, switching off on vocals, guitar, this and that. This collaboration produces a collection of consistent but familiar tunes that seem hastily thrown together, each instrumental and vocal decision decided by the fate of a coin toss.
