The Dream.
Everyone has a heart and it's calling for something
And we're all so sick and tired of seeing things as they are...

Definitely my favorite song of the 4 so far. Also even though its the simplest video I think its Paul's best video for them as it matches  the angry scuzzy melody.

How many singles (with videos) do bands release these days? It used to be about 3-4 a record, right? This is already the 4th I think and the album isn't even out yet.

is probably their worst recent video.

Yeah, I have to agree. Either this one, or the one with the New Beverley in it where the Haim sisters just walked around for a few minutes.

I think Youtube's bitrate spoils any kind of enjoyment I might get from these videos. Paul hasn't been shying away from the "dirtiness" of film grain lately, even making a point of bringing it out in Phantom Thread and Anima ... but when you combine that with youtube's garbage compression artifacts, it just looks so bad. It's pretty much unwatchable to me, unfortunately.

For what it's worth, I thought Paul's video with them for "Now I'm In It" was awesome. It reminded me a lot of the look of Boogie Nights and Magnolia. The other ones lately just feel too rough around the edges.

I still don't know why he's making all these videos with them. He's probably just having fun, keeping active with these mini projects, testing lenses, films, etc., working on his skills, getting to film in different times of day in LA (which will be good for his upcoming film), and so on. But still, Haim's music is so mediocre that I have to wonder who their dad or close relative is in the music business.

There's no standard anymore. The Visual Album is very popular because youtube is used to listen to music (lyric videos, official visualizer, etc), so the more plentiful your videos are the better you chart all around streaming.

Actually there is a "relative" connection.  The mother of the Haim girls happened--by a Magnolia-level-coincidence--to have been Paul's art teacher in high school.  He didn't know that before he started working with them--he liked them as a band--but that kind of connection must have helped seal the ongoing deal.

You said it.

This is proof that you really can work with someone too many times. It's lost its luster and is just kind of annoying now. Admittedly, if I liked their music more, I'd be a bit more understanding. Are any of these songs hits? Why not do videos for some huge artists like, idk, Beyonce or Kanye or whomever. It all seems like kind of a waste.

I guess I should be glad he's using all his "phone it in" for-hire energy on this stuff instead of an actual film. I also notice and find it odd how his music video subjects are mostly women when his films aren't.

The sisters grew up in a musical family, and began playing instruments from an early age in the cover band Rockinhaim, fronted by their parents, Moti and Donna. The two elder sisters, Este and Danielle, began performing with the pop group Valli Girls in 2005. They released a few songs on soundtrack and compilation albums under that name, but left the group shortly after an appearance at the 2005 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

one must say that they developed

I knew that. How does that explain them being forgotten if it wasn't for him?

Let's go back to asking the important questions here:

Wonder where you find two dozen fake salamis?
