This is so awesome that we dearly, dearly wish that there were more than 30-second Instagram clips to share with you. As Pitchfork reports, SoCal rockers HAIM over the weekend performed at the Girls to the Front gala in LA – a benefit for the Girls Rock Camp Foundation – and they did a knockout cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” in their stripped-down performance.

First Listen: Stream XPN Artist To Watch Haim’s new album, Days Are Gone

haim Our Artist To Watch this month is the Los Angeles based band of sisters Haim. They release their debut album, Days Are Gone, next Tuesday, September 30th. You can listen to their debut now, in its entirety here via NPR Music. Ann Powers of NPR writes:

HAIM’s thoughtful, playful music is good for the radio, good for rock, and good for music lovers of all ages who need to carve out a little space to dream. Diving into so many different musical wellsprings, HAIM discovered its specific superpower: the ability to channel influences most listeners recognize within a fresh, personal sound. It’s easy to play the game of references on Days Are Gone. “Honey & I” re-imagines Fleetwood Mac as a duo with just Lindsey and Christine; “The Wire” throws its Shania Twain guitar riff against a wall built by The Bangles. The wonderfully moody “My Song 5” imagines a perfect union of Nirvana and TLC. “Running If You Call My Name” runs up that hill in the Kate Bush and finds Tom Petty free-falling on the other side. And so on, until the jukebox is exhausted.
