Spoon has been consistently churning out solid albums ever since its 1996 debut Telephono, and now the Austin-based band has released its eighth full-length album, They Want My Soul. The new songs see the band expanding its sound while still maintaining its unique style of smart and witty indie rock.

WFUV at SXSW: Divine Fits

Britt Daniel (of Spoon) met Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs) in 2007. They kept in touch, played some shows together, and the musical romance eventually moved on to California to blossom into the so-called ‘supergroup’ Divine Fits (@DivineFits), with the addition of Sam Brown on drums and Alex Fischel on keys.

Divine Fits - Words and Music - 2012

Divine Fits

When it was announced that Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Handsome Furs/Wolf Parade and Sam Brown of New Blood Turks were forming a new band, the first word that came to mind was "supergroup." Not to my mind, necessarily, but you get the idea. "Supergroup" gives the impression of a bunch of musicians who are passing time between their regular gigs to play around a bit. A distraction, of sorts. Nothing could be further from the case with Divine Fits.
