HAIM is three Los Angeles sisters by that very last name who have taken the cues of their multifaceted musical childhood and blended it into a sound that’s all their own. The trio, all under 23, claim to be inspired equally by the discerning taste of their folk-fan parents and classic ‘90s R&B, and it shows in their music.

HAIM are offering their first three-song EP, Forever, as a free download, and we can’t recommend it highly enough. We’re particularly partial to “Better Off,” which layers impeccable group vocals reminiscent of TLC or early Destiny’s Child over electrifying psych-rock guitar riffs. And closing track “Go Slow” would be a radio ready R&B ballad, complete with sexy bassline, were it not for that shimmering guitar. Check it out.

Reviews

Kelis’ sixth and finest LP is not the gastronomic concept album suggested by its title. Food is instead a feast of sweaty funk grooves and impeccable soul melodies, consistently satisfying and often fabulous.
