Many of you have probably heard of one of the most amazing bands out there right now: a trio of sisters from the 818 (that’s the valley, y’all) about to reach the… What’s the area code for the world?

The first time I heard these lovely girls, the high school me of yore immediately was mad with jealously that she didn’t have this music. I’m telling you, they would have gotten me through high school and college, and that is saying A LOT. They are so incredibly good. I hate doing the mash-up “this meets this meets this” description thing, so I won’t; also these young ladies have a sound entirely of their own that defies description. I think that all good music has the common thread of touching our souls in some way, of literally and metaphorically resonating with us. This is that kind of music; it will make you feel the way that your other favorites have made you feel with an extra bit of rock and roll.

Did I mention they are wonderful people? Este, Danielle and Alana are all hilarious, gorgeous and incredibly sweet. Anyone would put them on a dream BFF list for sure.  Their parents are absolute gems, as well. They put on an incredible show, with unbelievable transcendent moments… And then the next moment they bring Mamma and Papa Haim onstage for a barn-burning rendition of ‘Mustang Sally’. See them if you get the chance. Oh, and Miss Alana is a nail art maven. I just love this family and their musical genius.

And finally, A Haim-ku:
