Stream Haim's "Days Are Gone"
Next week, San Fernando Valley sister trio, Haim, release their debut album, Days Are Gone. If you can't wait to listen (like me), then you're in luck. NPR is streaming the record a week early in order to make your ears happy. These leather-clad, motorcycle boot wearing ladies know how to play some damn good music. Days Are Gone is definitely a true Haim record. It's all their own, and lends credibility to the fact that they've been so hyped over the last year or so. While listening, you'll find true pop songs, but also a hint of soulful R&B. You'll find some songs you've already heard, like "Forever," and "The Wire," but there are some serious gems you've yet to discover, like "My Song 5" and "Honey & I"! Have a listen here. —Maddie
