Album Review

The downtown Manhattan rock scene of the 1990s was inundated with "jangly guitar" acts, many of them painfully generic. But one of the more promising folk-rockers to make her presence felt in New York venues in the '90s is spunky Hoboken, NJ resident Mary Ann Farley, whose debut album Daddy's Little Girl is a departure from the two extremes one expects from '90s folk (angry sociopolitical commentary and waifish introspection).

Or is Farley actually making fun of their screwed-up priorities? Farley obviously isn't afraid to keep listeners guessing on a disc that is exciting both musically and lyrically.
