FORCED INTO FEMININITY cassette EP "I'm Making Progress"
We could not be more proud to announce the forthcoming release of the cassette EP "I’m Making Progress." Truly unique music by the incomparable Forced Into Femininity!
Forced Into Femininity has been the "marxist body horror act" of performance artist and musician Jill Lloyd Flanagan for 9 years. Jill is known for playing in the bands Coughs (Load Records), 2watt, Gula-Gila, and more. The music of Forced Into Femininity is a mix of asymmetrically assembled beats, strange electronic outbursts, and of course Jill's arresting vocal style. It has that truly rare quality of being unlike anything else.
Forced into Femininity’s previous albums were attempts to explore political theatre through allegory and extended metaphor. This new 5-song EP "I’m Making Progress" goes the opposite way into pure political literalism. Jill delivers her political concerns from the opposite perspective of punk. As she explains:
"Often punk has meant creating a false outsider’s view of one's own privilege and using it to self-righteously rail against the status quo. What if radicals openly talked about their own positions as gatekeepers maintaining racism, classism and sexism? 'I’m Making Progress' is an attempt to speak from the antiseptic voice of privilege, from the dark heart of liberal narcissism."
Forced Into Femininity is also embarking on an ambitious tour. You don't want to miss it:

FORM A LOG and DAVEY HARMS: New music on Hausu Mountain
Fellow record label (and friends) specializing in the strange and interesting, HAUSU MOUNTAIN, have put out TWO releases featuring Decoherence alumni.
Just a short while ago they released a new cassette by DAVEY HARMS. In case you missed the memo, Mincemeat or Tenspeed's Davey Harms is now releasing music as Davey Harms. Which makes his Decoherence LP, "Waiting for Surfin' Bird" the LAST Mincemeat or Tenspeed album. Or perhaps the FIRST Davey Harms album, as it was the debut of his newer "real instruments" style.
And today, Hausu Mtn releases a split LP featuring Form A Log, whose debut LP "The Two Benji's" came out on Decoherence. The split is with formidable experimental act Moth Cock, making this album a powerhouse team-up of two of the most forward-thinking acts in the modern underground. Guaranteed a true head-scratcher and brain-twister.

TWO new cassettes: Sunk Heaven and Some Pepper
It may seem that things have been quiet for a bit here at Decoherence but it can now be revealed that we have been preparing two special releases which both come out on May 12th. These are the first cassette releases on Decoherence, and while 2 doesn't quite make a "batch," these make a very cool matched pair.
Sunk Heaven's "Mirrored Confines" is 30 minutes of low-tech dungeon industrial, and Some Pepper's "Nightshades" is 60 minutes of underground cyberpunk glitch mangling. Both are solid albums and the strongest efforts to date by both artists. Decoherence is extremely honored to be able to present them both to you.
Because we think you'll be interested in owning both of these albums, we're offering a deal for ordering both together. The tapes are $7 and $8 separately or $13 together here. Just use the button below.

Decoherence is born
The big news is that Decoherence Records exists! The first LP release is officially out on Nov.5 and it's a great one. Form A Log's "The Two Benji's." Everyone who got a copy of the limited cassettes on the band's recent tour has raved about it, and it sounds even better on vinyl.
The 2nd LP release is already lined up, though there's no release date yet: The nation's top rhythmic noise jammer Mincemeat or Tenspeed has recorded a new album which is a total reinvention of his slamming noise jams. Can't wait to put that one out into the world.
