    BLACK MARBLE is the debut album by Above Above.

    Pressed on 180g marbled virgin vinyl. Each vinyl is unique in its pattern, so is every side. Comes in a deluxe all black die-cut outer sleeve. Vinyl is housed in a printed inner sleeve with Mark Chadwick's painting "Black & White Close Up" on the front and lyrics on the back. Limited to 300 copies.

    This vinyl release is a collaboration between clothing- and lifestyle store COEXIST (www.buksetrolden.com) and independent record label 10 FINGERS.
