Indie supergroup Divine Fits brings together members of Spoon, Wolf Parade, and more, so it's no wonder the band's debut full-length A Thing Called Divine Fits became an airplay staple at The Current and catapulted its way on to many of our staff's year-end lists.

In town for a gig at Minneapolis' Varsity Theater, the quartet swung through our studios to play a session. They chatted with Mary Lucia, including about the inscrutable Minneapolis reference in single "Would That Not Be Nice," and then played that song and a couple others... including, awesomely, a Nick Cave cover!

Songs played: "Would That Not Be Nice," "Civilian Stripes" and "Shivers (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Cover)"

After all, they fit the profile if you follow their respective bands. Yet, "A Thing Called Divine Fits" isn't about flaunting chops or propping-up egos.
