2020 Charity Shop Purchases 48 HAIM - Days Are Gone
Turns out that there was another charity shop in Alford right next door to the Dog Rehousing one which I hadn't notices before. It seemed rude not to pay it a visit. I can't remember what the charity was but the shop was very small and claustraphobic which is never pleasant when you are waering a mask.
I felt obliged to make a purchase and duly parted with 50p for a copy of Days Are Gone the 2013 debut album by the American sisters HAIM. I had a copy burnt from the library and thought it would be good to replace it.
At least that's what I thought until I got round to listening to it. I've no idea what possessed me to copy it in the first place. I'm guessing it must have been the hype as it certainly wasn't the music. It reached number one in the UK selling over 200,000 copies in the process.
From the sublime of yesterday to the ridiculous.R&B pop mixed with synthesisers doesn't work for me. It's going back and the copy has been condemned to landfill. My mind will not be changed
Given the fact that HAIM appear to now be massive I'm sure they wont loss any sleep about that.
