Haim - "Hold Me" (Fleetwood Mac)

Los Angeles sister-trio Haim covered our very favorite Christine McVie jam, the underappreciated impossible-not-to-sing-along-with "Hold Me," for the forthcoming Fleetwood mac tribute, Just Tell Me That You Want Me. The rhythmically-inclined ladies update the 1982 Mirage-era cut with a fat bass drum and bass line, muted grooves of guitar, and some seriously steamy three-part harmonies. The tribute, which also includes the gnarly Blake Mills-produced Billy Gibbons cut "Oh Well," is due out digitally on August 14th. In the meantime, dig up those old Fleetwood Mac records and cassettes and turn back the clock. I'll be to listening McVie's original on repeat. (via AV Club)
