Forced Fem: The Safe Word 7"

Agrowax Records

$5.50

Another insanely limited Houston punk 7" from the mighty Agrowax Records. Forced Fem are billed as a goth-punk band, but really their sound isn't all that different from other Houston bands like No Talk, Secret Prostitutes (on their mid-paced songs at least) and the Real Energy... like those bands, Forced Fem have a really in the pocket, mid-paced punk sound, but the low-pitched, melodic, Ian Curtis-esque vocals give this a totally different feel. Way more punk than most of the neu-goth bands popping up lately, this is more like strong 80s death rock of the punkish variety.
