Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs, Medicine County (Transdreamer-)

6
Medicine Country
Critical Mass
Label: Transdreamer

by Amanda Petrusich

British songstress Holly Golightly isn't bashful about her retro fetish (as if her nom de plume didn't give it all away), and for the past 15 years, she has been steadily mining classic American rockabilly and country blues. Medicine County is more boisterous than 2008's Dirt Don't Hurt, but there's still something pleasantly lackadaisical about Golightly's delivery, and her songs never feel like they've been blindly co-opted. She soars highest when tackling traditional cuts: Her rendition of "Blood on the Saddle" (made famous by Tex Ritter) is rich, creepy, and undeniable.
