Watch: Haim Conquer SNL with “The Wire”


I saw Haim for the first time when they played the Treasure Island Music Festival last month.

I hadn’t heard the slick soul-pop of their recordings which was good because they don’t match this rock quartet live. Yeah, I did say rock quartet ’cause Haim has gone rock in a serious way.

This “Saturday Night Live” performance gives you sense of what they deliver live.

Danielle Haim — she’s in the middle with the cool red SG guitar — has a distinctive, compelling way of singing, you can really hear during this performance of “The Wire.”

Here they are on SNL performing “Don’t Save Me.”

Watch: Another Teaser Video From Arcade Fire, “Afterlife”

Footage was shot in Haiti where Arcade Fire recorded the new album, Reflektor. There’s also footage from a show at Montreal’s La Salsatheque, according to Consequence Of Sound.
