I just discovered HAIM (pronounced to rhyme with "time",) I saw a gif from the music video "Don't Save Me," and was really curious where it was from, so I just searched it on Google and the band popped up.

They are so infectious, they remind me of a female version of Dog Is Dead except maybe a little more stripped down. I really love their vibe, and just got the deluxe version of their album. Here's a few of the songs I checked out, mostly music videos. I think you guys will dig them, too!

Happy listening! :kiss:

Oh, they're quite the qute little Jewesses. :cuteface: 

I really do like their album, but not as much as I kinda wish I would. I am willing to cede that yes, it's definitely ~good~, but at this point, their music just refuses to transcend my expectations like I want them to. However, I love them for what they do, and they definitely work with the right people. :creep:

I love them. :flutter: They really struggled & took their time to record their debut album, and even though it's not perfect (some of songs could have been a lot better when you compare to how they sound live), I really dig it. Hopefully they'll get better recording in the studio with the time, I still think they can get bigger.

 

some stuff to check out if you're a new fan:

Oh and they're doing SNL on 23rd november. :party:

Yeah! I just listened to the album before, and it really took me a while to give the other tracks a chance, but I'm still coming back to The Wire and Don't Save Me. They're amazing, but the album is a little weak in...diversity, I guess. Some tracks feel like an extension of others. Maybe after some more listens... They have such a bold presence on stage, such attitude. Totally badass chicks. :crying4:

I really like them, The Wire just gets me jivin' and swingin' to the rhythym. :dance:

Yay finally a HAIM thread!

 

Same as madrigal though, their album isn't -quite- doing it for me yet. I suppose I don't find any of their songs relatable, nor do they lyrically have any interesting stories to tell... idk

Funny how this got bumped today, I just bought their record yesterday AND I'M IN LOVE. Idk why I never really gave them a proper chance until now. After hearing the first four songs on Days Are Gone a couple days ago I already knew I had to have this CD. It's amazing.

My favorite song is Falling, but I also really like Don't Save Me (I just recently fell in love with it), My Song 5, & then the rest of them.  :flutter:


Nothing scares me anymore.

I accidentally stumbled on the Falling video the day it came out and have loved them since. 

 

Really like the album. And I've got such a crush on Danielle.

They recorded the original draft/demo of the song in garageband (using it as like a musical notebook) and the program's set titles for the recordings is 'my song ___' (like document 1 etc.) and they just kept the garageband file name instead of coming up with a new one  :brows:

That's funny, I didn't know that! I'm seeing them live in a week! So excited, they seem to be really great live!

Ohhh okay thanks, I actually really like that! It's funny too bc you would think they would make it track #5 if they were gonna keep that as the title haha. Anyway, SUPER track.
