Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs

You Can’t Buy A Gun When You’re Crying (Damaged Goods)


Following her departure from Thee Headcoatees, this is Holly Golightly’s 14th studio effort, and after successful collaborations with Jack White, Mudhoney and Rocket From The Crypt she now teams up with long-time bandmate Lawyer Dave to produce a beguiling set of dark, ramshackle country tracks.

Featuring the British indie luminary’s striking smoky vocals backed by stripped down, woozy guitars and warm harmonies, You Can’t Buy A Gun When You’re Crying is a magical listen from start to finish and if Golightly is to be believed is also named after a real US law, which you’ve got to admit is pretty awesome.
