HAIM team up with Leonard Friend for a brand-new "Falling" remix (and video).
Los Angeles indie rock sister act HAIM seem kind of in love with everything retro, and frankly we're still reeling from their '90s R&B meets Fleetwood Mac single, "Falling." So it's probably a good idea that the 2013 mtvU Woodies performers would team up with R&B-pop singer-producer Alex Feder, aka Leonard Friend, to remix their highly addictive single, which comes newly packaged with auditory references to Zapp, Phil Collins, and TLC. (What, no Fleetwood?). Oh, AND there's a groovy (that's a purposeful adjective -- you'll see why in a second) new music video to match!

Haim want Taylor Swift to forget guys and party with THEM! Because GIRL POWER!
If you read Buzzworthy with any regularity, then you know one of our favorite topics is everything Taylor Swift-related. We dig her music (especially her latest "22" video), we dig her outfits (WANT ALL OF HER DRESSES), we dig her bangs, and we dig her surprised faces. And yes, we'll admit it -- we REALLY dig talking about who she's dating (or not dating, as the case may be). So sue us! We just wanna see Tay Tay happy. We feel like blogger yentes over here -- we're just dying to set her up with
Ed Sheeran a nice boy! And because this is obviously a very important and pressing issue, ESPECIALLY in the music community, Buzzworthy's Tamar Anitai got to work asking all of our favorite 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards artists who THEY thought Taylor Swift should date next.
Watch Haim, Tegan and Sara, Icona Pop, Zedd, and more Woodies musicians pick dates for Taylor Swift at the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards after the jump!
Too busy to watch all of the "Harry Potter" movies? Paramore help you skip to the end.
The whole concept behind the Woodie Awards is music college kids love. And what else do college kids love besides music? Besides Shakespeare, always going to class, turning in papers a day ahead of schedule, and not doing drugs? Movies! Which is why I asked some of the all-star musicians at the 2013 Woodie Awards about movies. But who's got time to watch an entire movie when you could be tweeting and watching cat videos? Which is why I asked those musicians to skip to the point and spoil the endings of popular movies. Missed the end of "Lord Of The Rings"? Paramore sums it up tidily. Never seen "Legally Blonde"? Hayley Williams explains it all. Don't know what happens in "Star Wars"? Let Wallpaper bring you the closure you need. Twenty One Pilots share a pivotal moment in "Titanic." Haim recaps "The Breakfast Club" like their last name was Ebert. And you'll never guess what happens in the end of "Ernest Goes To Jail," so just let Woodie winner A-Trak tell you, for God's sake.
Watch Paramore, Wallpaper, A-Trak, Haim, Twenty One Pilots and more Woodies musicians spoil the endings of famous movies at the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards:

Haim's still looking for Prince, while we're still looking for that full-length Haim album.
Este, Alana and Danielle Haim share many things -- parents, clothes, instruments, an intense love of the forgotten MTV show "Spider Games." They've shared a stage with Mumford and Sons and Kesha (not at the same time), they share a love of Prince as well as subconscious knee-jerk reactions to Kanye West references, the adoration of, like, most legit music fans in all of the U.K., and they currently share the title of raddest band on this Haim-forsaken planet (Mumford agrees) with their inimitable, badass blend of '90s-meets-'70s-meets-Boy-Krazy-meets-Grace-Jones-meets-Susannah-Hoffs-meets-Wilson-Phillips-drinking-a-peyote-yerba-milkshake-meets-Nick-Cannon-in-"Drumline" sound. (Trust me, when you watch them go Genghis Khan on the drums while murdering harmonies and making a guitar beg for mercy at the Woodies, you'll agree that that's the most accurate assessment of their eccentric talent, which is akin to a musical Higgs boson, which is to say that they're mysteriously revealing the truth of the existence of musical perfection. And God or something. Crazy, stupid Ryan Gosling-talented.)
But one thing Haim will not share is their full-length album. Yet. And not like I or any other Haim fan is anywhere near the proximity of being over their Forever EP or upcoming Falling EP, but, like, I also can't wait... forever for that full-length, ladies.

Tegan & Sara and MGK are hosting the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards in Austin!
The 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards are coming up NEXT WEEK, MY FRIENDS. (The show premieres March 17 at 8 p.m. E.T. on MTV and mtvU, in case you forgot.) And in addition to an already stellar lineup of performers, including chart toppers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, now the Woodies have even MORE star power: Indie-poppers and nominees Tegan & Sara will host this year's Woodie Awards, along with "Wild Boy" and Woodie winner MGK!! Aaand now we're having a lot of fun imagining that onstage dynamic -- Tegan and Sara seem totally chill, and MGK seems, well, like MGK.

HAIM get back to nature in their "Falling" video.
While some nature survivalists might disagree, the first thing you're going to want to do if you find yourself out in the wilderness is to fashion yourself a pair of super kewt cutoff denim shorts. Because you never know when a camera crew is going to wander by, and you want to make sure you've allowed yourself as much flexibility as possible for that night's spooky dance party around the campfire. Basic survival skills here. And Los Angeles sister trio HAIM know what we're talking about in their new video for "Falling."

HAIM combine classic rock and R&B in their new song, "Falling."
Los Angeles' HAIM might want to reconsider their name. Maybe Sister Sledge or The Partridge Family... anything '70s or sister-related would do. (The Partridge Family seems especially appropriate given that HAIM used to play in a band with their parents.) Just don't call them Fleetwood Mac, because apparently everyone else already has. All-sister trio Este Haim, Alana Haim, and Danielle Haim may tackle frequent comparisons to Rumors-era Fleetwood with their parted-down-the-middle-hair '70s vibe and ultra-melodic, whining guitar-solo pop rock (oh, and there was that time they covered "Hold Me"), but on their new track "Falling," HAIM swim with various schools of musical fish, '90s R&B and contemporary female-led indie pop chief among them.
