Five years ago Holly Golightly
left her native England and her working band to form the Brokeoffs, a duo with a Texas native who calls himself Lawyer Dave. The couple settled in Madison, Georgia, where they now run a horse-rescue shelter
on their own property and occasionally make records, among them the brand-new Sunday Run Me Over
(Transdreamer). Their life together and their decision to work as a duo—both play guitar and sing, and Dave plays drums—might suggest that they're ready to drift into cozy rusticity, but Golightly sticks by her scrappy, postpunk-influenced take on raw American roots music, which braids together unsentimental honky-tonk and gutbucket blues. The duo complement their unfussy originals with a few well-chosen covers, including the Davis Sisters' sweet country ballad "I Forgot More" and the ersatz arrogant Mac Davis hit "Hard to Be Humble." The two of them can get right to the heart of every style they tackle, and they radiate pure joy as they do it. —Peter Margasak Daniel Wayne and Del Moroccos open.
