Episode 9

Haim’s ‘Women In Music Pt. III’ Is So Good It Will Win Over Any Hater

Well, quarantine messed up a lot of timelines, so the State Of Grace episode on Haim’s third album, Women In Music Pt. III is dropping on the first day of September even though the record came out in late June. This ninth episode is a doozy because one half of the pod, Eric Fulcher, has been a long-term Haim head, and the other half, Caitlin White, has frequently been a hater! But Women In Music Pt. III — despite having a very clunky name — is such an excellent album that it’s brought the two of us into agreement about the record. It’s definitely one of the best releases of 2020, and an album that functions really well during a quarantine because of the darkness and the sadness it explores. Is this a contender for album of the year? How does WIMP differentiate itself from their first two albums? What did they do to finally stop Caitlin from being a hater?
