HAIM, "The Wire"

The band HAIM is a new one to me, but that is a category that increases with each passing day. At this point I feel a certain amount of satisfaction if I can at least claim to have seen the name somewhere before; knowing anything about the music is an almost impossible dream. I can only imagine that I am but a few years away from expressing confusion over entire genres. What joys await! Anyway, this one: I was not particularly into it at the outset and stayed solely for the actual video part, because there is nothing so enjoyable as watching men cry, if only because I find company comforting. But lo and behold, by the song’s end I was actually somewhat into it. And now HAIM gets filed away into that recess of my brain where the next time they are mentioned I can hit “retrieve” and say, “Oh, yeah, I’ve heard of them.”
