This song appeared on the soundtrack of the Netflix film Someone Great as well as on Twin Shadow’s most recent album, Caer. I’m not sure if Madison first heard this in the movie, but if so, it’s yet another favorite song with a tie to a movie. There’s definitely something to that connection.
Closing out this week of quick hits is a track from the new Haim album, Women in Music, Part III. I didn’t even realize the Haim sisters had released a new album until I stumbled across this cut last week.
I’ve since listened to the whole album a few times and I’m loving it. It’s their best work so far. Just check out the sultry groove of today’s SOTD… the whole album has this vibe.
The trio of California sisters has teamed up with director Paul Thomas Anderson once again on the video (this is their fourth collaboration with the filmmaker, who has known the ladies since he was a student of their art teacher mother).
I don’t love everything Haim does but I really like their style (musically and otherwise) and the whole Southern California art school vibe they exude.
The clip features a single shot of the three sisters walking down a completely empty Ventura Boulevard in their hometown Los Angeles at dawn, occasionally pulling off some subtle dance moves but mostly just looking simultaneously goofy and cool.
