Holly Golightly has had an interesting career, to say the least. The London native started out in one of the umpteen versions of hyper-prolific punk poet Billy Childish's garage-rock outfit Thee Headcoates, where she no doubt came to the attention of Jack White, who eventually recruited her for the tongue-in-cheek duet "It's True That We Love One Another" on the White Stripes' 2003 breakout Elephant. Since then, Golightly has taken a hard left into dust-on-the-Bible roots-rock and Americana. Her last two albums with the Brokeoffs (a.k.a. Texas-raised musician Lawyer Dave), 2008's Dirt Don't Hurt and the just-released Medicine County, lump saddle-sore cowboy songs, knee-slappin' Deep Ellum blues (and bluegrass), wayward gospel and disarmingly upbeat murder ballads into an irreverent, irresistible package.
