A quick Google-search on 'Jonathon Zwartz The Sea' comes up with a number of retailers. The label the album was released with is 'Vitamin Records'.
Good luck!

I bought 'The Sea' Jonathan Zwartz for myself last Xmas,and I won't say I haven't stopped playing it. A recording such as this you don't want to thrash. It is too special.A lush,beautiful and mesmerising set of wonderful tunes...This CD is top-shelf and it's Australian. Brilliant!
