[COUNTRY FOLK] Holly Williams is not trying to be her father or grandfather, two guys who happened to be named Hank. Leaning more toward folk than her country-legend relatives, Williams still infuses her tales with a weariness and sense of woe that would not be out of place on a country record. Williams gives raw performances that squeeze every last drop of emotion out of tales about the downtrodden. Her rich vocals make the tales tragically sweet. Her music won’t necessarily brighten your day, but you’ll be entranced by it, nonetheless.
