AllMusic Review by

A collection of music from widely divergent pop styles, from folk to spoken word to post-punk, A Little Nip highlights the music of female musicians from New York's Hudson Valley. A few gems on the album amuse, especially the spoken-word work of Mary Panza, and the anthem "When I Was Drunk" by Mother Judge and the Urban Holiness Society. The most notable qualities of this recording as a whole, however, are its intimacy and regionalism: these women all seem like big fishes in really small ponds, which unfortunately limits their appeal to audiences outside of New York.
