A thing called Divine Fits Divine Fits

£4.99

Product description

A Thing Called Divine Fits is the debut studio album, by the American / Canadian indie rock band Divine Fits. The album was recorded in Los Angeles in a backyard studio, with producer Nick Launay between the months of March and May 2012.[1] It was released on August 27, 2012 in Europe and August 28, 2012 in North America on Merge Records. The first single, “My Love Is Real”, was released on July 31, 2012.

A Thing Called Divine Fits was received generally well by critics, who claimed it was something fresh from the "supergroup" that they hadn't done with their respective groups before. Aggregate rating site, Metacritic, showed a rating of 77%, based on 30 reviews. Josh Modell of Spin said that the group is "flirting with the coolest music 1982 had to offer", but that they have more potential than what they showed on this album. Other critics said that the two songwriters, Daniel and Boeckner, fit together naturally. Rolling Stone's Jon Dolan says it's a "genuine synthesis", while Consequence of Sound claims that "it might be the most fortuitous musical pairing in recent history".

The album was listed at #23 on Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 albums of 2012, saying "This is the rare super-group that is more than the sum of its promising parts."
