The Haim sisters sweep out of LA like a blast of heat from the hills. Who says no one is making good pop music anymore? Here then, continues an overview of some of the best albums of the past year…

HAIM – Days Are Gone

Haim

Este, Danielle and Alana Haim grew up in the San Fernando Valley steeped in the popular music of the 80’s and 90’s – indeed they played in a cover band with their parents (with the awesome name Rockinheim) as kids. Their debut full length album,¬†Days Are Gone¬†brings the melodic sensibilities and harmonies of Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Brothers with a dash of TLC’s sass. That isn’t to suggest that HAIM’s music is solely derivative or mired in the pop of decades gone by – this is a collection of highly original and well crafted tunes.
