This mixtape is intended for queers among us who are known for their appreciation of nineties leading ladies, distortion pedals, getting lost in daydreams, feminist utopian visions of social transformation and, of course, sludge metal. Really, the only theme is that these are all songs Hoax Zine co-editor Rachel plays as background music while she is editing zine submissions.

I made a homoground playlist, and I’m not joking when I say that this is the only mix I’ve been listening to lately.
So sometime around now ten years ago we started playing in my dad’s basement together and it makes me so happy to think about because playing music with Shannon and Abby was the greatest decision I ever made and I’m glad it has led to everything that it has.
