I’m not actually doing it here, but I feel like it’s time for all of us to stop referring to Divine Fits as “the new Britt Daniel/Dan Boeckner/Sam Brown” band and just start calling them “Divine Fits.” Their album A Thing Called Divine Fits continues to get better every time I hear it, they’re a reliably tight touring act, and they wreck shit every time they show up on late-night TV. Case in point: Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the band played their own tense, nervy song “Like Ice Cream” and busted out their cover of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky,” which they’ve been doing live lately. As long as these guys stay active, I’m not going to be too upset about Spoon being on an extended break. Watch both performances below.
A Thing Called Divine Fits is out now on Merge.
