Holly Golightly And The Brokeoffs Medicine County On Vinyl LP

She may be considered the “U.K. garage-rock queen” (SPIN), but Holly Golightly has always embraced the sounds of the American south.  She followed that muse to the dry, rural county of Madison, Georgia, where she now lives on a farm raising horses, chickens, and the curiosity of her neighbors.  Golightly and The Brokeoffs (a.k.a. one-man band and frequent Golightly collaborator Lawyer Dave) recorded their new album Medicine County in an abandoned, recently foreclosed upon church nearby.

Medicine County features twelve new recordings, including eight originals by Golightly and The Brokeoffs, alongside traditional numbers like “Blood on the Saddle” and “Jack O’Diamonds.”  While there’s a spectral quality to those traditional songs and others on the album, Golightly offers some levity, and a sharp lyrical wit, on tunes like “Eyes in the Back of My Head” and the album’s title track, a postcard from their new home.  It’s a testament to the caliber of Golighty and The Brokeoffs’ writing that the trad numbers consort seamlessly with their originals. 

The Washington Post has noted that Holly Golightly “can make you believe in past lives” and she’s lived a few of her own.  While Amy Winehouse and Duffy were in grade school, Golightly was fronting girl-group revival harbingers Thee Headcoatees.  More recently she has collaborated with groups like The White Stripes and Mudhoney, and in 2005, two of her recordings were featured prominently in the acclaimed Jim Jarmusch film ‘Broken Flowers.’  Since 2007, she has performed with The Brokeoffs, a partnership Pitchfork calls “heartily ramshackle,” and American Songwriter magazine has hailed as “genuine, inspired and soulful.”
