FDCD110 KLEISTWAHR Acceptance Is Not Respect CD. New album from Gary Mundy, expected in September 2018 comprising two parts that between them feature seven tracks inspired partly by religious and political beliefs and their place in a 21st Century UK that is secular and tolerant yet showing fissures during recent years. More subdued and elegiac than most of Kleistwahr's output, there's still much explored in Gary's perfect ability to bridge seemingly uncontrolled noise with tethers that see it assume new shapes. As with the previous albums, limited to 300 in a gatefold LP style sleeve based on the Broken Flag design. Scheduled for mid-September 2018. Can be pre-ordered now for the slightly reduced price of 9.50 + 3.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world). Once the album is here, the price will increase to its standard 11.00 GBP + shipping.
FDLS105 2DICKS Neighbourhoods in the Eternal Light lathe-cut 7". Two collaborative pieces by Richard Youngs and Richard Johnson (hence the 2dicks moniker) recorded mid-2017 and essentially comprising source material from the latter teased into comparatively more 'listenable' shapes by the former (with the help of an additional sound or two). Not the easiest of music, Richard Youngs himself referred to the pieces being akin to mid-period Flux of Pink Indians-meets-PIL's Flowers of Romance during the recording process, but this may suggest results that are less avant-garde than they actually are. This release should appear in July/August 2018 in an edition of 50 lathe-cut 7"s in handmade packaging. It is available to pre-order now. 18.00 GBP + 6.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world) NB: Given the nature of the release, the price is inevitable. Sorry. Lathe-cuts are great fun but expensive to produce!
FDC104 DZIADY Gaseous God cassette. Four tracks belched from a deep underground lava-stream of barbed electronics, menacing growls and feral guitars, replete with guest guitar work from founder of Poland's premier death metal group, Vader, Piotr Wiwczarek. Limited to 20 and packaged with 4pp booklet featuring the lyrics. Out in October, 2018. £5.25 + shipping (anywhere in the world)
WHITE PEE CD. Album from this excellent US duo who sometimes expand to collaborate with others in both a live and studio setting. Their music veers from a kinda contemporary take on intergalactic churn, replete with hypnotic rhythms impossible to ignore, to realms clearly drawing from 'noise', avant-garde and improv tendencies. News in due course.
FDEP108 V/A ''Presently Untitled' 2x7" e.p. Featuring a track each by Richard Youngs, Alternative TV, EXTNDDNTWRK, Map 71, Kleistwahr, Theme and Sion Orgon. Tied in with Fourth Dimension Records' night at Cafe OTO on October 19th comes this compilation in the form of a double-7" featuring the four artists appearing on the night itself and a few others associated with the label. Essentially a mini-album's worth of material represented by an exclusive track each by Alternative TV, Richard Youngs, Map 71, EXTNDDNTWRK (Andrew Fearn of Sleaford Mods' solo endeavour), Kleistwahr, Sion Orgon and Theme. Only 350 will be pressed and no further editions will be made. Some copies will be available to buy on the label night at OTO, but the remainder (beyond royalty copies given to each artist and those otherwise involved) are strictly direct order only from Fourth Dimension Records. As with the JFK 'Weapon Design' LP, there is a slightly reduced price for pre-orders either until and including October 19th or for the first 100 orders (whichever comes first). Following this, the price will increase to £15.50 + shipping. And before anybody complains, these cost around £10 per unit to produce, once all costs have been accounted for. No wholesale, no promos, etc. either. Sorry. The reduced price for the pre-orders/first 100 orders is the best we can do. £13.50 + £4.00 shipping (anywhere in the world)
FDC111 INCONSOLABLE GHOST Sokolowsko Channelling cassette. In August 2017 the UK/Hungarian/Dutch trio of Hilary Jeffery, Gideon Kiers and Zsolt Sores appeared at the Sanitorium of Sound festival in Poland's Sokolowsko, a village situated amongst rolling fields of green, woodland and hills in the west of Poland. Together, using a combination of voices, electronics, trombone and viola, they created a vast and fully immersive blanket of psychedelic sound effective in its ability to point to what lays beyond those constellations formed at the edge of the mind's eye. Powerful in both scope and vision, the music filled out the village's only cinema with serpentine drones and huge, foggy plumes of suitably crepuscular sound like steam-hammered crystal shards to the skull. This was an expansive music that instantly transfixed the listener whilst layers of meta-sound coiled deep within. The venue was perfect and the realisation undiluted by compromise. Thankfully, the event was recorded and forms the the basis to this limited edition cassette release for Fourth Dimension Records. It captures the entire hour-long concert and certainly will not be the last word from this group. Released in September 2018. Out now! £5.50 + £3.00 shipping (anywhere in the world)
FDCD107 MAP 71 Void Axis CD. The very latest from this Brighton duo of Lisa Jayne (words, voice) and Andy Pyne (percussion, electronics) who over the past year or two have been steadily gaining wider recognition for both their live performances and their recorded work. Fourth Dimension Records released their excellent 'Gloriosa' album in 2017 as a limited edition cassette which sold out instantly and prompted a CD reissue in early 2018 featuring some bonus tracks culled from equally now hard-to-find limited edition releases. 'Void Axis' is their fourth album and catches the duo at their most immediate thus far, with Lisa's narrative being pushed to new places in terms of its delivery. The music itself remains possessed of a contemporary post-punk hue that equally draws from other genres themselves often turned upside down. 'Gloriosa' garnered heaps of praise that sometimes saw Map 71's work noted alongside the music of Sleaford Mods, Z'ev, Suicide and Cut Hands. 'Void Axis' is the perfect way to discover whether one agrees with that or not. Released by Foolproof Projects/Fourth Dimension Records. Out now. 2018. £9.50 + £3.50 shipping (anywhere in the world)
FDLP101 JFK Weapon Design LP. The very latest from Ramleh's Anthony Di Franco,, Weapon Design presents eight devastating tracks of pure electronic mayhem. This is the second full length JFK LP following the release of the NGANGA album on Chondritic Sound in 2017. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton, at Alchemy, London. Limited edition of 300 black vinyl LPs in shrink-wrapped sleeves. Released mid-July 2018. 16.75 GBP + 6.50 GBP postage. (anywhere in the world).
FDEP106 ALTERNATIVE TV Dark Places 12" e.p. Where to start with Alternative TV? Most know that Mark Perry, founder of Sniffin' Glue fanzine, formed the group either due to or as a response to punk in 1977. Since the debut 'How Much Longer' 7" released that very same year, however, Mark has remained the sole surviving original member and driving force. Not one to stand still, he has taken the group through a succession of lineup changes embarking on a wide spectrum of styles since then; the only unifying factor amounting to a sensibility that never once strayed from its original status. Until now there have been around fifteen albums, with the last one, Opposing Forces,. from 2015 on Public Domain Records, proving to be be amongst their strongest with its marrying of igneous rock, idiosyncratic touches, barbed commentary and occasionally seething undercurrents of dark psychedelic noise. 'Dark Places' expands the mantle of this by offering four tracks, aided by Dave Morgan and Clive Giblin and enhanced further by a guest appearance by the legendary Vic Godard on one of them, that encapsulate a vision as perfectly widescreen as it is bifurcated. Cascading between full-on rock to a kind of minimalist electronics approach perfectly in keeping with Alternative TV's traverses to the furthest reaches, 'Dark Places' might well seem a world away from where the group were 41 years ago but pays testament to deep metamorphosis, both internally and externally, very much a foundation of their sensibilities. Please note that this 12" was released on 21/04/2018 to coincide with Record Store Day. 600 were pressed, of which 500 were on grey vinyl and 100 were on black. 14.00 GBP + 6.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world)
FDC103 LIMBS BIN Vomitous Excoriations of Phlegmatic Aesthetes cassette. Live from Western Massachusetts, this is twenty minutes of churning electronics, drum machine blasts and shrieks of paranoid ecstasy from America's last honest voice in an ocean of duplicitous vipers. Strictly for the young at heart. A long walk with no stops. A sacred meditation on life as a vessel. Recorded by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. For fans of General Dynamics, CSX and North Street, this is the latest release from a solo artist not given to cutting corners. Released in mid-April 2018. Limited to 50. SOLD OUT
FDCD102 MAP 71 Gloriosa CD. Reissue of the long o/p cassette released by Fourth Dimension in spring 2017. This collects all seven tracks from the tape release, plus a further six tracks originally released on the equally sold out Blue Sixteen tape (Blue Tapes, 2014) and eponymous CDr on their own Foolproof Projects in 2013. The Brighton duo merge words swaying between the observational and surreal by Lisa Jayne with Andy Pyne's incredible, Charles Hayward-ish, percussion and subtle infusion of electronics. The line between post-punk and its forays into, dare we say, artiness and the more instant and reachable end of the avant-garde might seem very clear here, but the music draws from a wide range of sources twisted into something that very distinctly can only be Map 71. Released in late February 2018. OUT NOW! 9.00 GBP + 3.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world)
FDCD99 SPLINTERED Moraine CD. Remastered reissue of the 1997 album originally issued on vinyl only by Germany's Suggestion and No Risk No Fun labels.

FDCD86 KAKOFONIKT Kaktuus CD. "The album Kaktuus by KakofoNIKT is an interpretation and translation of the cactus experience into the language of sounds. The compositions are arranged as consecutive stages of the contact with the cactus - starting from preparations, peeling off the skin and spines, going through all the stages of the sensations up to the extreme effects. Kaktuus is the result of experiments with sound perception, methods of improvisation and attempts to evoke peak experiences through music."
