As you may or may not have guessed, things have moved very slowly for this album making it a difficult one to just let go and write the new one.
The label it was initially released on (Iapetus) were only interested in the physical release and there are only a few left as far as i know. They are still available in the bigger record stores and from Iapetus, theres a link on my website.
But now, until the prospect of a re-pressing with the music business being in the state it is, Bella Union have released the album digitally and it is now available for download from all the following places HOORAY!:

Here are a few quotes about the album:
"The lyrics are streams of lost, tragic consciousness that, if you chose to follow, will lead you deeper into your own forests of uncertainty and set off visual fantasies that might disturb or delight." 10/10 - WHISPERIN AND HOLLERIN
"Stoic beauty is Marshall's stock in trade, and the Leeds singer-songwriter's mastery of the crucial distinction between reflective melancholy and banal self-obsession is evident on every track here" - SANDMAN
"he performs this brand of folk with the legends of the genre. One of the best debut albums of the year" 4/5 SPUTNIK MUSIC (USA)

"This, his debut album, is rich in heartfelt lyricism and subtle yet affecting-cum-effective instrumentation" 7/10 - ROCKSOUND
