Days Are Gone - COLUMBIA
FILTER Grade: 83%

With a mere modicum of imagination, one can picture the sister trio of Danielle, Este and Alana Haim in ’95, murdering choreographed playroom karaoke to Michael Jackson video replays. Produced largely by Ariel Rechtshaid—whose virtually ubiquitous presence in pop music is undeniable at this point—Haim’s debut transcends the role of scenery for a tableau of strong singles. But it’s the alarming depth of the “Don’t Save Me”s and “Days Are Gone”s that lend the family name its rightful staying power.
