Every once in a while there comes along an artist who restores your faith in (real) music. They capture you with familiarity. They keep you with their novelty. And all of a sudden you're energized, inspired, touched in that unexplainable way that sorta just shook the earth beneath your feet. Totally turned on.

For me, this happy surprise came Friday night at The Bowery Electric during Cantora Records' CMJ showcase.
HAIM hails from LA. They're a band fronted by three sisters with two chaps in the back on drums and keys. They've got a deadly and powerful cocktail of impactful, raspy and emotion-laced vocals; song structures that avoid staid, expected progressions; catchy lyrics (in the good way); the stage banter of someone comfortable in their skin and sense of humor; and mega-solos. Artist comparisons flooded my head as I watched; Fleetwood Mac, The XX, John Mayer, Tracy Chapman, Nirvana; and yet they're incomparable.

WORKOUT wants to be your party band. With hardly any songs under the five minute mark, this four-piece fills rooms with anthemic odes to love, death and fantasy. Featuring Jack Killen on vocals and piano, Alexander Forbes on guitar, Jason Langdon on bass and Tim Traynor on drums, WORKOUT is well known as one of NY's wildest rock monsters. Finger-tapped guitar solos taunt the audience into sing-along choruses and foot-stomping chants, generating enough chaotic noise to break any bar out into a brawl.
