Holly Golightly – Slowtown Now Album Review
I have to start by saying that I am not what you could call a long term fan, although I have been aware of Holly Golightly’s music for quite some time.
This is a very enjoyable, and interesting album. It caught my attention from the opening drum strikes on Track one, side one, and with the same apparently simple style of music flowing across all 12 tracks it holds it till the end. It could almost be a time warp thing from the late 60’s or early 70’s, but there is something much more modern underpinning everything that stops it feeling too much that way, despite the odd twang of guitar making me think of late 60’s american country music.
My own favourite tracks are Seven Wonders, and What you see, or at least they are this Friday night, they will probably be different when I listen to it again. I don’t think it is an album that could disappoint a long term Golightly fan, and is a superb introduction to her work, it is certainly good enough to ensure I have a search through the back catalogue.
To sum it up, I am going to do something I said I would avoid, This album appears to carry the catalogue number DAMGOOD 444-LP, and that is exactly what it is a, damgood LP.
I knew nothing of this artist before this arrived for review, just a vague feeling I had listened to something by him on Spotify once.
