Funny and spirited garage-folk rocker Holly Golightly recently paired up with her one-man band The Brokeoffs for their second release as a duo, Dirt Don't Hurt. Together, Golightly (formerly of Thee Headcoatees) and The Brokeoffs (a.k.a. Lawyer Dave) cook up sprightly duets with a lo-fi sound.

Bluesy riffs and jangling banjo provide an appropriate background as Golightly and Dave lash each other with snarky lyrics. "Won't you choke upon your coffee / I'm gonna drown you in your tea," they sing on "My 45," with a smirk demonstrating that the parade of insults is just part of a joyful shtick.

In this session with host David Dye, the two discuss the small Spanish studio in which they recorded Dirt Don't Hurt in five days. The space was filled with vintage equipment as an homage to old-time American roots music.
