Northern state a thousand words


Dying in Stereo is the second release by New York City-based alternative hip hop group Northern State. It has been described variously as an EP and a "mini-album". Nevertheless, it is usually described as their official debut album, since their first release was just a self-released four-song demo. This led PopMatters to describe it as a "litmus test" that will determine "what will happen to white, female, feminist rappers, who aren’t pencil-thin or supermodel pretty."

Reception

The album received generally favorable reviews from critics. The exceptions to this trend included Pitchfork Media, which gave it a scathing review in which the reviewer, Michael Idov, described the album as "the most heinous hip-hop release since MC Skat Kat went solo", and Drowned in Sound, which described Northern State as "a pointless hybrid of the Beastie Boys and *N-tyce (from the female wing of the Wu)." Many other critics also compared Dying in Stereo's music to that of the Beastie Boys.
