Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-10-28 
British Holly Golightly takes the plunge into “old-timey” music (nice to know that Tippy Canoe and a plethora of Bay Area locals seem to have initiated this genre/”trend”). Undeniably seductive with her Heatcoatees band (a take-off on her boyfriends infamous Headcoats band) she goes into the the American traditional music that’s been plundered a zillion times from Tom Waits to your average alt-country No Depression band. Difference here I guess it’s the diva herself. Its all pretty derivative, but its her, so its good. So check it out. But if this is your first exposure to Holly Golightly, I STRONGLY suggest you plunder her aforementioned projects (check the “Girl in the Shower” 7” that KZSU gleefully has!).

1) swingy and swampy, male dominated
2) slow and sad and bluesy with her vocals up front
3) swingy and swampy, very Waits’y with the percussion
4) slow vibrato, slight circus somberness
5) FCCs
6) swampy and minimal with percussion and banjo, duet vocs
7) slow blues swing, girl vocs in front, slow and dark
8) upbeat, fast rockin southern
9) slow plod Waits’y
10) upbeat banjo fronted and happy drunken scorned feeling, since when did these wankers move down south?
11) slow blues
12) slow somber with her singing
13) upbeat slide guitar male vocals
14) upbeat rockin again, male dominated vocs, great chorus
