Mix: Female Voices in Hardcore

You probably don’t have to worry when you walk out your door. Will you be judged? Will you get comments? Will you get stares? Will you feel helpless? Will you be followed? You’ve got to walk in pairs. Don’t we have anything else to offer? You only see the surface. Your unwanted opinion is worthless, but not harmless. Our looks, our bodies, are none of your fucking business. We don’t exist for you to appraise, not a compliment, no fucking thanks. 

– Punch, “Worth More Than Your Opinion”

Closet Witch

Correction: The artist behind 964 Pinocchio, whose wonderful “I Pledge Allegiance (For Cassowary’s Honour (Yeah, right))” was previously included in this mix, has asked that the track be removed because their music does not feature female vocals. A perhaps thematically fitting reminder that despite my best efforts to recognize my own privilege I still fall back on the narcissism of assumption. My apologies.
