No Help Coming

Transdreamer Records

Holly Golightly has been a D.I.Y. staple for over 20 years and her latest No Help Coming is no different, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not great. It just further adds to Golightly’s timeless sound.

“Burn, Oh Junk Pile, Burn” and “Get Out of My House” are rawkus rockabilly tracks that could start an impromptu hoedown right there in your cubicle.

She also nails several covers, including Bill Anderson’s “The Lord Knows We’re Drinking” and the crazy-country closer “L.S.D. (Rock ‘N’ Roll Prison)” written by Wendell Austin.

The great thing about Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs (essentially Golightly and Lawyer Dave) is that these songs are equal parts new, refreshing, vintage and familiar. All 12 of these tracks could easily fit on an old-time country station on the AM side of the radio, but they also fit right next to the best alt-country acts like Ryan Adams and Steve Earle.

No Help Coming is another great chapter in a career that has inspired generations of Do-It-Yourself artists and is now inspiring a new generation to do the same thing.
