PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


Haim won our hearts when they covered Sheryl Crow's deep-cuts classic "Strong Enough" on an Australian radio program. Actually, the trio of sisters who specialize in folk-meets-smooth-R&B originally won our hearts with their first EP last June. But our obsession might have reached its peak with their cover of Miley Cyrus' sledgehammer-fellatin' hit "Wrecking Ball." After a bout of gargling from Este (the cover actually starts at the 0:33 mark), Haim launch into a more guitar-filled, less produced-sounding rendition that almost feels more painful -- and therefore more right -- than the original. Or maybe the Haim gals are just really, really good and singing painful songs about failed relationships. Watch above.
