I did see Melissa Etheridge in concert, I saw Sarah McLachlan in concert, I saw Paula Cole in concert and Sheryl Crow. All these amazing ladies had such an amazing outlet and place to play music, and it was really beautiful, and I feel like that’s not really available anymore and that outlet isn’t there.’

ere at Rock NYC we have covered the valley sisters since their humble beginning, I saw them at a tiny street fair (the Hudson Block Party) then at the Twilight Concert Series in Santa Monica in May and July 2012, Iman saw them opening for Mumford and Sons at Barclay Center early 2013, but I really heard about them for the first time early 2012, when Ryan Adams joined them on stage at the Echoplex… yes, the tiny Echoplex and now they are playing the Staples Center with Swift, just three years later

Is it me, or the tune even sounds la bit ike the Police at 0:58 and at 1:57? Because yes, it goes back into circles, a bit pop-dance, taking a full disco ball level, then these half-hushed Fleetwood-Mac-like multi voices and then open dance floor again….

I give you this, they are young girls and cute, and this is why we get this new vinyl of their track ‘My Song 5’, shaped like Alana Haim’s derriere, with her legs and arms sticking out of the vinyl’s edges. Why? Did fans need this? I am certain they will sell out very fast

still can’t make sense of the Haim sisters’ enormous success, I saw them a few years ago at a tiny street festival in LA and there were like 10 people, then saw them at the Santa Monica pier a year later and they had attracted a rather large crowd, but now they are literally headlining the FYF fest? They have a 9 pm spot just before the Strokes, which is big deal

Are Haim touring the UK? Interesting they’re back on the charts as are Arctic Monkeys for some reason best known to the rest of the world, I never forgave them after a terrible set at MSG.

Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires Of The City is overrated and I love the album. Katy Perry’s Prism is overrated and I don’t like the album but neither are quite as overrated as these three, VW is better, KP is worse, but these three most overrated albums of the year are off the charts…

Yeah, I know early Miley is the pix, but she has topped both the UK singles and albums chart for the week, so what do you do? But Lucy Spraggan deserves it.

I am losing interest fast in Justin, not entirely, but really only one great song. Haim are a real bore and Alter Bridge (the guys who wrote the music for Creed – wow, that’s some kinda credentials) are hard pressed to be worse

Unvarnished – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – Sure this is Joanie 101 but it is also older Joanie 101, whether worrying about aging on “Fragile” or slashing and burning “Reality Mentality”, she is still writing strong glam riffs with shout outs, and sing-alongs. No, it isn’t Album, but it is still damn good – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+

Unvarnished – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – You know what you hope it sounds like? That’s exactly what it sounds like; glam rock, power rock, street anthem, soccer game top of the terrace at the top of your lungs singalonga – B+
