Hello there.  Phideaux Xavier, progenitor of some eclectic music, has a new album called Snowtorch.  It is the eighth album by this man who is now a band.  So, the band's latest album is now available on bandcamp (as well as half of it streaming right here on ProgArchives.com.  Unfortunately, we missed the deadline to get physical copies to our distributors in time for our intended release date.  We have, however, uploaded the final version to bandcamp.com for 10 dollars.

http://phideaux.bandcamp.com/album/snowtorch

The various distributors and sites (amazon/cd baby) should have copies within 3 weeks.  BUT:  If you wanted a physical copy and can't wait to buy the album immediately, purchase it on bandcamp and send me an email with your address and I'll send you the CD as soon as I have it back from printers.  I'll likely ask for some postage donation if you're far away (ie. overseas, in another dimension, post-incarnate)

cheers and sorry for the delay.  However, we wanted to ensure that your listening experience would be safe and productive.

Let me know what you think of the album.

Phideaux Xavier I

I'm disgusted to say that I already found it on a russian pirate site.  There is just no respect for the time and money and effort spent on a creative work like this.

Listened to the album while working today, it kind of reminded me of Thick as a Brick as you sort of can get lost in the two long sprawling tracks. And I don't mean that as a negative remark, I personally love Thick as a Brick.

I have listened to the work twice now.  If you are a Phideaux fan, you will not be disappointed by Snowtorch.  Buy it.

Bought, already listened to a few times and quickly impressed. I sent my address for the physical copy already.

the reviews and ratings about this album are happening to be really unhealthy. I mean people write reviews just to drop it in the top albums of all time list. Big smile isn't it hilarious? also writing a 5 star review just to make it 'the best album ever' is very very funny. I see only a few people really considering the importance of this album in terms of progressive rock music.

Just exchanged e-mails with Phideaux about getting a hard copy on CD. Only an additional $5 postage to Liverpool, England which is exceptionally reasonable!

You may also be interested to hear that I asked him whether there were any plans to release any of the Phideaux catalogue on vinyl. Those of you who, like me ,  prefer to have a slab of wax over a CD or a download will be pleased to hear that they plan to release Snowtorch on vinyl. To quote the great man:

"We will ultimately be doing a vinyl catalogue upgrade over the next 2 years beginning with Doomsday/The Great Leap (as a 3 LP set because each album fits on 3 sides)

After that, Number Seven

From this point forward we are eager to release our albums on Vinyl as well as CD."

I did also suggest maybe partnering with k-scope/burning shed who knock out some cracking vinyl LPs for the likes of Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, Anathema (and shortly Marillion - Marbles being hopefully the first of many). There was some suggestion that burning shed may not be interested in them - if so, more fool them!

Anyone fancy joining me in petitioning burning shed?

If Phideaux can do it themselves and keep all the money, more props to them - I'm not sure what the advantage of getting Burning to shed to do it would be. Guess we'll know for sure once we've seen the Snowtorch vinyl.

Also, Great Leap/Doomsday Afternoon combo sounds amazing Shocked

I'm listening to "Snowtorch Part One" from the free streams here, and it reminds me of 70s Floyd mixed with some Tull and something else, I'm not sure. It's got that modern feel though. I would love a copy of this new album.
