Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs, 'Dirt Don't Hurt' (Transdreamer)

Dirt Don't Hurt
Critical Mass
Label: Transdreamer

by Rob O'connor

Recorded in five days in an analog studio on the coast of Spain with vintage equipment, Holly Golightly's 13th studio album is less primitive garage rock than lo-fi campfire jamboree. Adorned with gospel shouts, errant banjo licks, and a smattering of unusual percussion, these tunes (fleshed out by her "band": Lawyer Dave on "things with strings") could easily slot onto a Harry Smith Folkways anthology of field recordings or an obscure collection of ancient rock'n'roll. The ballads tend to turn murky, but the rockers are terrifically drunken reveries.
