Sometimes, revenge is best administered quietly; Holly Golightly’s slow-burn post-breakup song “Virtually Happy” is more than ample evidence of that fact. The ex-Headcoatee’s solo output, with its unabashed love of rock’s mustiest days, has been consistently great since her first album came out ten years ago; we’ve also included her cover of Ricky Nelson’s glum “Lonesome Town,” which she recorded in her kitchen.
