Non-relativistic geometries that violate hyperscaling have been used as holographic laboratories for probing strongly coupled phases with anomalous scalings. In this talk I will discuss holographic computations of DC conductivities in gravitational systems that exhibit such scalings, and allow for momentum dissipation. I will also comment on the cases in which one obtains a linear temperature dependence for the resistivity.
