"Recent efforts from Northern State and Fannypack may have brought the
idea back to life, but Tara DeLong - hailing from New York City via
Mexico City - takes the idea of hardcore female rap to the next level.
Here, on her second album, she populates her world with the characters
she met during a sabbatical south of the border, a decision resulting
from what she saw as the increasingly boring insularity of the NY
underground. There is but one voice here, and it’s DeLong’s, but she
plays every character in character, veering in style from bratty
Beastie Girl through lascivious, bootylicious nu-jack-soul diva,
culminating in the Sleater-Kinney does The Slits meeting bored
Shangri-Las in a drive-in that is ‘Silicone Joan’. All life is here,
and what a life it is." Fela Lewis
