Noah & The Whale were one of the leading protagonists of the small but perfectly formed indie-folk scene of the early days of the 21st Century.
Formed in Twickenham, the five-piece, led by vocalist and guitarist Charlie Fink, originally boasted Laura Marling in their line-up, before she left to begin her successful solo career.
Released in August 2008, Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down was like a breath of fresh air with its optimistic-yet-realistic worldview and, as The Guardia was to note, its "twinkling acoustic songs, bursting with brass, keyboards and fiddle" were "economic and brimming with sure-footed confidence."
Its 11 songs include the group's debut single and signature track, 5 Years Time, which was to become their first UK Top 10 hit.
This re-issue is pressed onto high quality 180g vinyl.
Tracks: 2 Atoms In A Molecule / Jocasta / Shape Of My Heart / Do What You Do / Give A Little Love / Second Lover / 5 Years Time / Rocks And Daggers / Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down / Mary / Hold My Hand As I'm Lowered
