Album: Holly Golightly featuring the Brokeoffs, Long Distance (Damaged Goods)

Golightly, best known outside the cognoscenti for duetting with Jack White on "It's True That We Love One Another", is on her 13th album now (not counting her work with Thee Headcoatees, among others), and Long Distance is no radical departure.

But it doesn't need to be. Ten songs of love gone wrong, all lazy drums and twanging guitars, sung in a great ersatz-hillbilly voice, it sees Golightly staking her claim once again as the Brenda Lee of the Medway scene. SP
