Artist: CIRCLE
Title: Arkades
Format: LP
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Arkades catches a session Finnish group, CIRCLE, recorded exclusively for WFMU during their US tour, September 19, 2005. Comprising two lengthy pieces taking up a side each, "The Greatest Kingdom" and "The Ghost of the Highway," the record focuses on the bands often spacy improv underpinning and applies new meaning to a vision which strides powerfully over the line dividing apocalyptic dread from a semblance of hope. Agonized wailing, screams and torrents of molten sound dance ghostly shapes over psychedelic keyboard patterns, distant clattering, moonlit guitars and a rhythm section so carefully tempered that its impossible not to feel the chemistry at work. Coupled to a fantastic sleeve which illustrates a homage to spaghetti western films and includes fitting notes by WFMUs Program Director, BRIAN TURNER, Arkades proves what these New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metallers are capable of when they leave most of the rock at the door. File somewhere near Acid Mothers Temple after having been given the kinda makeover only the Scandinavians have the formula for. Indeed, this is sweet shit." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: CIRCLE
Title: Triumph
Format: Double LP
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Yet another vinyl-only release by Finlands finest export for Fourth Dimension, following an affiliation that takes in the now out of print Arkades LP and equally almost sold out 2CD reissue of it and, indeed, goes back to 1995, when we released a (now rare/collectable) 7", Ghatarian. As with the original Arkades LP, this release gathers recordings for a session at WFMU, this time recorded during their second US tour and captured live on the 25th September 2007. Spread over the four sides are the six cuts which made up Circles second session for WFMU, once more capturing the self-proclaimed new wave of Finnish heavy metal outfit proving themselves to be almost everything but heavy metal despite possessing the only too apparent ability to compete with the best amongst that world. Taking in operatic vocals, unearthly mulch, psychedelic splurge, nods towards folk and Krautrock, and mammoth riffs capable of knocking down nearby buildings, avant-rock has rarely arrived both so potent and in dire need of a straitjacket before. The new wave of Finnish heavy metal is positively bursting with ideas like nothing else." -Fourth Dimension

Artist: EXTNDDNTWRK
Title: Untld
Format: 10"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
“Limited edition 10" featuring two sides of mixed cuts by Andrew Fearn of Sleaford Mods. Sways between buoyant yet grizzled electronica, nightmarish hue, post-dancefloor meltdown, acidic squelch, malfunctioning space probes, and snatches from the ether. If SM can often be described as confrontational, then the music of Extnddntwrk may well be there to help flesh out the hallucinations induced by the sucker-punches. Musically owing, however, more to his own work in Infant and an entire background in homespun electronic works,Untld comes from the same place as SM yet is coupled to something altogether more personal, driven by bittersweet experience.” - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: JAWORZYN, STEFAN
Title: Lick My Pussy, Will Montgomery
Format: 10"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $7.00
"The Ascension guitarist, solo live in the UK 1996." -Fourth Dimension.

Artist: JFK
Title: La Bas (1987-1992)
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"JFK is the project of British rock and electronic musician Anthony Di Franco (Ramleh, Skullflower, Ethnic Acid). Originally active between 1987 and 1992, JFK was conceived as an experimental rock band that could create "a total music, absorbing all possibilities." This exclusive CD compiles rare and previously-unreleased tracks, including the Temple of Set/Sexodus 7" (previously-released by Fourth Dimension in 1992). The JFK sound is a brain-melting clash of electronic rhythms, blazing guitar riffs, warped vocals and walls of feedback. This retrospective collection features nine cuts by Anthony Di Franco, who has formed a valuable pillar in some of the best music to have furrowed post-industrial musics sprawl into the kind of distorto-heavy psychedelia where something entirely more menacing is the order of the day." -Fourth Dimension.

Artist: KLEISTWAHR
Title: Over Your Heads Forever
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Eight new solo works from Gary Mundy, whose latest Ramleh album, Circular Time, received a lot of praise when released in late 2015. At times taking on a slightly more tempered approach this album still arrives stamped with Garys own take on a descent into a black-hole where screaming can definitely be heard. Kaleidoscopic noise has rarely sounded so triumphant or majestic whilst paradoxically resigning to the flaws of the human condition. This album will complete the present trilogy of Kleistwahr releases for Fourth Dimension and is to be once again housed in an oversized gatefold sleeve based on the original Broken Flag style. Edition of 300." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: KLEISTWAHR
Title: The Return
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
“Following the 2014 release of Kleistwahrs album This World Is Not My Home (FD 091CD), Fourth Dimension Records presents a remastered reissue of The Return, originally released as a limited-edition LP by Noiseville in 2009 and long out of print. Gary Mundy (Ramleh, Breathless, Broken Flag founder, etc.) never felt completely satisfied with the Noiseville release, so he digitally remastered the album for this edition, which also includes two previously unreleased bonus cuts. This release captures Mundys original intention to render the music at once powerful and dynamic in a setting where volume is a significant part of the sound. As with Mundys long-running group Ramleh, the music of Kleistwahr stems from a place both angry and anguished. Underpinned by a huge sense of existential despair, a sense of urgency and frustration likewise screams from this music. Long known for his part, along with Whitehouse and Consumer Electronics, in creating a music subsequently known as "power electronics," itself copied by hundreds of groups to lesser effect or seen as a wellspring of inspiration by countless others often removed from this form, Mundys own forays have always ventured far beyond such convenient trappings. Kleistwahr, his solo enterprise, testifies to this exploration and, more importantly, to Mundys place as a progressive and highly accomplished visionary artist deserving of far more than his status as merely a cult concern. The Return witnesses electronic music once more teased and reshaped into something highly original by one of the genres master craftsmen. Listen to it as loud as your ears can take. Packaged in gatefold Broken Flag-style sleeve.” - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: KLEISTWAHR
Title: This World Is Not My Home
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The latest album from Gary Mundy (Ramleh), who has been using this moniker since the early 80s to further furrow the worlds of intense electronics, harrowing psychedelia and violent or claustrophobic atmospherics he is already known for. Less prolific than Ramleh, Kleistwahr began with several cassette releases on Garys own much-revered Broken Flag imprint and has subsequently been afforded more releases by labels such as Noise War, Noiseville and Harbinger Sound. This World Is Not My Home collects seven pieces recorded between 2013 and 2014 of mostly instrumental sprawling guitar and electronic works. Edition of 300 in a classy Broken Flag-type sleeve." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: MITSURU, TABATA
Title: Uprising/Sky Lantern
Format: 7"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"The third entry in the FD Records sub-series by one of Japans most important and prolific artists, here with a slice of psychedelia-tainted avant-weirdness seemingly beamed in from somewhere outside the atmosphere and ending up in an abandoned industrial complex. Tabata Mitsuru formed Boredoms, became a key member of Zeni Geva, and had many other projects before mostly becoming known for his solo and collaborative works as well as his current status as one of the main contributors to the Acid Mothers Temple collective." - Fourth Dimension

Artist: SLEAFORD MODS
Title: Mr. Jolly Fucker/Tweet Tweet Tweet
Format: 7"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"Sleaford Mods started around 2006 in Nottingham by Jason Williamson. Born out of frustration and by accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive attack on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment. "Mr. Jolly Fucker" and "Tweet Tweet Tweet" sees the duo continuing their sometimes raucous yet always edgy melding of mean hip-hop beats, often savage poetic observations (think whizzed-out Mark E. Smith) and snarling punk attitude. A full-on kick to the senses inspired by the Sex Pistols, The Last Poets, and 60s garage and soul music." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: Calmont Breakdown
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"New solo album by the highly prolific yet always captivating Richard Youngs, whose music can waver healthily between new forms of singer-songwriter material, lo-fi drones, and all manner of avant-garde forms/non-forms. Here, his music sways towards the difficult and embraces organ drones and swells, frazzled electronics, a voice that is at once unnerving and unnerved, and more besides. Anybody expecting a comfortable listen should be prepared. This is challenging music at its best; something Richard Youngs has been adept at since the very beginning. Limited to 300 digipaks." - Forced Exposure.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: Primary Concrete Attack
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Another solo album by the highly-prolific yet always captivating Richard Youngs, whose music can waver healthily between new forms of singer-songwriter material, lo-fi drones and all manner of avant-garde forms/non-forms. On this album, Primary Concrete Attack, he utilizes a borrowed spring reverb generator from his friend, Luke Fowler, to rise to the challenge Richo at FD set him of creating a dub record. While not liking reggae or dub himself, Richard Youngs professes a huge passion for tape echo and spring reverb, plus loves a hearty and perhaps provocative challenge. The eight tracks that make up Primary Concrete Attack, as perhaps expected, bear little in common with a dub record and fall far closer to the idiosyncratic worlds Richard Youngs generally appears to feel happiest in. Combining electronic splurge with all manner of loops and various sound sources, this album focuses very much on their effects and how to play around with them as much as the original sounds." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD & LUKE FOWLER
Title: Yellow Gardens
Format: 7"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"The first entry in Fourth Dimensions new Singles Club sees the prolific avant-folk and generally self-styled Richard Youngs making his first appearance on the label since his collaborations with Simon Wickham-Smith in the mid-1990s. This time, he collaborates with Luke Fowler on a couple of incredible synth jams based around modulations, atmospheric splurge and stuttering rhythms. Limited to 250 copies." -Fourth Dimension.
