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)"
