Northern State's blending of riot grrrl sloganeering into Paul's Boutique nostalgia and up-to-the-second references ("I'm a full grown woman, once a gifted child/And this is Northern State, not Girls Gone Wild" -- rap it in the cadence of Mike D) works pretty well on All City, their Sony debut. Great title, too. There is a nagging in the back of the skull, though, one that wonders just what it all means between the props to Brooklyn, strong displays of self-confidence, and shout-outs to Carrie Bradshaw and Chang Kai Shek.
