Here, read this Gchat I had with my buddy in L.A. the other day:
Buddy: Hey- I saw this band last night called HAIM. They are unsigned and AMAZING. Three sisters ages 16, 19 and 21.
Me: :-/ … like Corey Haim?
Buddy: No! Pronounced like “Hi-Eem.” These girls are unbelievable. They have these amazing deep voices. And they’re totally hot but they rock out with super ugly faces! And, I mean, one is 16! So good!
Obviously my curiosity was piqued, right? I mean, wouldn’t yours be? So I dig the gals up on MySpace and listen to a couple tracks… And yeah, I can hear the rock twisting their baby faces. They’ve got so much attitude! You can practically see their necks doing that “Nuh uh, girl” side to side thing when you listen. As for the actual music, they sound kinda like… Fiona Apple and Alanis Morissette joined 4 Non Blondes or Hole? Is that too obscure? Like Brandi Carlile (I effing LOVE her! — Tamar) became a really big fan of P!nk and Aerosmith! Does that make sense? Hey, how about you just take a listen to HAIM on your own and let me know what you think?! Cool?
