"Ain't That the Way"

One half of a double-A-sided single from indie supergroup Divine Fits (featuring Spoon's Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade), "Ain't That the Way" jolts between classic-rock-y verses and an upbeat jangle-spastic chorus. "You got me all locked up/And I can never refuse," Daniel cries out in sandpapery ressentiment, and the revved-up, circa-1972 guitars suggest he and the other Fits are digging into some Humble Pie.
