Haim - Discussion Thread

From wikipedia.org:

HAIM (pronounced /haɪm/ to rhyme with "time") is a rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band comprises sisters Este (born March 14, 1986), Danielle (born February 16, 1989) and Alana Haim (born December 15, 1991), along with drummer Dash Hutton, previously a member of Los Angeles bands Wires on Fire and Slang Chicken.
Most frequently compared to Fleetwood Mac, HAIM's sound has been described as "nu-folk-meets-nineties-R&B" and "music that sounds like it was written on a lakeside retreat attended by Stevie Nicks, John Waite and En Vogue". The band played at the 2013 Glastonbury festival, they earned a top ranking in BBC's Sound of 2013 poll, and signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation management group.

Tracklisting for the album:

1. "Falling"
2. "Forever"
3. "The Wire"
4. "If I Could Change Your Mind"
5. "Honey & I"
6. "Don't Save Me"
7. "Days Are Gone"
8. "My Song 5"
9. "Go Slow"
10. "Let Me Go"
11. "Running If You Call My Name"

A really fantastic electro-pop/rock album that really reminds me of early Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. Extremely catchy album and highly recommended.

re: Haim - Discussion Thread

I flew out to LA from Jersey last year to see the 2 "reunion" Phantom Planet shows. Haim opened for one of them. This was before they were big or anything. They put on a good show, and I really liked their stuff. Then like 6/8 months later they really started blowing up. BUT the bassist does the weirdest thing where she like opens her mouth as wide as she can like she's screaming, but no noise is coming out. It's kind of like an Ozzy/Simmons mix. It was fucking annoying. There are pics online where you can kind of see it if you google "haim bassist", but you will def. notice it if you see them play.

They did an iTunes Festival show in September and noticed that. I thought she was having a stroke or something. Yet she can control it when she's singing. Her sisters need to have a word with her.

Maybe she can team up with the weird looking drummer from the Killers and form some sort of facial-tic supergroup.

Other than that, the iTunes Festival show was pretty solid.

unfortunately i have only found it on sharing sites. i do not condone or encourage that behavior.

perhaps if you googled some of the songs something may turn up?

re their ace of bass, perhaps she wants some cool refreshing water spit into her mouth?

I really dig the new songs. The "Right Now" video was directed by PTA.

Re: Haim - Discussion Thread

I've seen the new album be referred to as Fleetwood Mac meets Prince. That is somewhat accurate. Overall a good followup, but not as many standouts as the first album. I would still recommend it.

Re: Haim - Discussion Thread

I knew of Haim and heard a few songs over the years.

I really love this new album. It's catchy and a lot of fun. I'll be buying it.

My favorite track is No. 9 Walking Away.

Re: Haim - Discussion Thread

Haim has been compared to 70s soft-rock legends Fleetwood Mac, however, they like to insist that their influences are a bit more up-to-date, revealing they are big fans of 90s girl groups TLC and Destiny's Child, but also claim to be fans of Kendrick Lamar, Jessie Ware and Azealia Banks. Consequently their music sounds a bit like folk-rock with a few R&B/hip-hop stylings thrown in for good measure.
