Dirt Don't Hurt is the second album resulting from the collaboration between Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs (who are actually just one guy named Lawyer Dave), and like the first it delves deep into the backwoods and back roads of American music. Golightly and Lawyer Dave again write most of the songs and draw from the wells of country ("Up Off the Floor" and "Accuse Me"), country blues ("My 45" and "Cluck Old Hen"), electric blues ("I Wanna Hug Ya, Kiss Ya, Squeeze Ya"), and their own unique mash-up of styles ("Three Times Under" and "For All This," the most Golightly-sounding song on the album). The duo has an authentic and tough sound, with Lawyer Dave making the most of a bunch of homemade-sounding percussion and both of them playing some gritty and no-nonsense guitar.
