Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs

Sunday Run Me Over

    Sunday Run Me Over is Holly's fifth album with the Brokeoffs, actually a duo consisting of the London-born, Georgia-based singer/guitarist and Texas-bred multi-instrumentalist and longtime collaborator Lawyer Dave, who contributes guitar, drums and backing vocals. But it's one of nearly 30 albums on which the pioneering D.I.Y. iconoclast is featured, either as a solo artist or band member, and that figure that doesn't include her various singles, guest appearances and collaborations with the likes of the White Stripes, Mudhoney, the Greenhornes and Rocket from the Crypt. Throughout a career that's spanned more than 20 years, she's maintained a fierce fidelity to the unpretentious attitude and stripped-down sonic sensibility that's made her a seminal influence upon multiple generations of garage, punk and lo-fi artists.

    Although she prides herself on sticking to the basics, Sunday Run Me Over nonetheless finds Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs mining an assortment of rootsy musical sources to create such deeply expressive, unmistakably personal tunes as the chugging opener "Goddamn Holy Roll," the ghostly, loping duet "They Say," the off-kilter waltz "One For the Road" and TK, a line from which gives the album its title. The set also features a trio of retooled cover tunes: a lilting take on the Davis Sisters' 1953 country hit "I Forgot More, a spirited reading of Wayne Raney's 1960 gospel chestnut "A Whole Lot More..."—aka "We Need a Whole Lot More of Jesus (and a Lot Less Rock and Roll)"—and a hearty run through Mac Davis' 1980 "Hard to Be Humble," which boasts an appropriately swaggering lead vocal by Lawyer Dave.
