We don’t get everything right here at Stereogum, but we can rest easy knowing one thing: We made the Californian sister act HAIM a Band To Watch in June of 2012, and goddam if we weren’t on the money that time. Since that time, the band has released a long string of fizzing, swirling instant studio-rock classics (“Falling,” “The Wire,” “Don’t Save Me“). Next week, they’ll finally release their debut album Days Are Gone, and it’s so good. And now, you can finally stream the whole thing at NPR. So yeah, do that.
Days Are Gone is out 9/30 on Columbia.
