Every couple of years, Holly Golightly emerges from her horse sanctuary in rural Georgia, gets the old gang back together (invariably this means Bruce Brand on drums) and records another killer album of low-slung garage and slinky sixties beat pop. And while Do The Get Along doesn’t veer far from the template of her countless previous albums, it’s as good as anything she’s done.

By turns scornful and scorned, love-struck and libidinous, all the things you already love about Holly’s music are here. Out of the three smartly chosen covers (she always picks great songs!), her shuffling, bluesy take on Steve King’s Satan Is His Name is a real standout, while her own smouldering, yearning Hypnotised is another. Another gem.
