The 'Houston Press' Mixtape: XX Chromosome Edition

Don't Peggy Olsen us, motherfuckers. We know how hard Houston women work on music, and we know how hard the music industry can work on them. Today the Houston Press is bringing you a mixtape of the artists who have survived it — all the haters who said they were too old, too big or too black — and wrote songs that Clutch City can be proud of. On this mix, you'll find feminist punk sensations Giant Kitty, the euphoric shoegazing of Kay Weathers and many other women mentioned in this week's Houston Press cover story. Of course, no mixtape of this sort would be complete without the stylings of Kam Franklin from The Suffers (bonus points to you if you know which "bar on McGowen" she is talking about).

If we missed you or your band this time around, we're really sorry. Please blast us in the comments so we can get you on a tape next time.
