Haim – Women In Music Pt. III (2020)

Here we have the latest and 3rd album from the Haim sisters. A straight up sixteen track offering too which is quite rare to often see. Certainly delivering the content here.

The album kicks off with the laid back smooth jazz sound of “Los Angeles”. It’s difficult to quite label but it has a certain kind of smooth groove to it, with the horn/brass sounds that introduces the record, and with that really nice under-groove bass guitar sound (in fact the bass sound throughout the whole album is lovely). Overall, it’s quite an eclectic album with bits of different genres seeping through, from quite jazz sounding, to blues.

The album has a different sound to the two previous Haim albums, yet whilst still sounding like a Haim album, if that makes sense. A really interesting mix of songs here often sounding multiple genre elements within the same track, so many different sounds coming through on this one. The album however closes on a very similar vibe to where it started however on the track “Summer Girl”, which brings it all back in nicely and closes the album perfectly.

Overall a really enjoyable record, with plenty to offer.
