Sunday Run Me Over is the second album released in 2012 by Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, following early spring's Long Distance, a collection of her older garage rock material re-recorded in a distinctly more Americana/honky tonk style. Long the queen of the garage, Holly Golightly's work with her strange partner "Lawyer Dave" acting as the entirety of the Brokeoffs has seen the punk energy that brimmed over in scrappy solo albums (or even more so with work in the early femme-stomp of Thee Headcoatees) shift somewhat into a country-tinged sound, possibly a product of her new environment, as Ms. Golightly left her London home for life on the farm in rural Georgia with Lawyer Dave sometime in the late 2000s.

It’s hardly news for an English artist to take root in American blues tradition — Zeppelin and the Stones nearly dried that well four decades ago. And yet, after 20 years making music, London-born Holly Golightly continues to find interesting avenues to explore in raw, stripped-down blues rock on Sunday Run Me Over, her seventh album with collaborator Lawyer Dave, and 17th album overall. There’s nothing particularly complicated or unorthodox about the manner in which Golightly and Dave strum or stomp out blues nuggets and country ballads.
