MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

Why You Should Keep Your Eye on Haim [2013 in Review]

As we continue looking back at some of the more memorable MIMO articles from this past year, we came across this analysis piece written back in April by Tim Ferrar on LA-based sister act Haim. Earlier, David Tillman had included them on his 2013 Acts to Watch list, and it turns out they didn’t disappoint. Haim became one of the hottest acts on the festival circuit, followed up by a […]


HAIM Beats Justin Timberlake in UK Chart Battle

This news bodes quite well for a band that was virtually unknown a year ago. HAIM, the R&B/rock sister act who has made waves all summer long on the festival scene, released their debut album the same day as current R&B pop king Justin Timberlake released his followup to The 20/20 Experience—and outsold him in Britain.
