Divine Fits – Flaggin’ a Ride (2012)
New Spoon Audio Ware? Not Quite. Take a trio of US alt pop stalwarts but the dominant personality on this cut feels like Britt Daniel. His sharp vocal stylings and phrasing in tandem with the razor like white funk pop (echoes of Hall & Oates perhaps?). Precision of rhythm, phrasing, ziptight guitar hooks and a sense of anxious post punk/new wave energy replicates the sound of Mr Daniels main creative concern and that is most certainly not a fault and not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all.
