Somehow, pulsing soft dance floor synths into Divine Fits’s single “Would That Not Be Nice” cuts an even sharper edge against Britt Daniel’s unmistakable voice. Ramble John Krohn, better known as RJD2, smears some old-school electronics all over the supergroup tune that’s still in the running for one of the year’s catchiest. The beats may fall in different places and the corners might stick out at new angles, but oddly enough Daniel’s dry barks nest perfectly well against RJD2’s spongey chirps.
