The electronic musician visited the Dalston branch of the charity shop
Electronic musician Caribou donated up to 150 vinyl records from his personal collection to his local Oxfam branch.
As reported by Fact, the Canadian producer – real name Dan Snaith – dropped off a pile of records to the Dalston branch of the charity shop on Monday (May 11). Snaith confirmed the news via Twitter, see the tweet in question below.
Dalston Oxfam later shared pictures of select records from the donation (see beneath) and announced that items will go on sale today (May 12) as well as on Amazon Marketplace.
Caribou recently unveiled the video for his single ‘Can’t Do Without You’. The song is taken from the his sixth studio album ‘Our Love’, with its video directed by Lorenzo Fonda. The clip follows a little boy who plays with a rainbow-coloured, giant fish before the two are forced to part ways.
Caribou will be playing a host of UK festivals this summer including Field Day, Latitude and Glastonbury.
He played the biggest UK live date of his career in London to a sold-out O2 Academy Brixton audience in March, saying that he “never dreamed” he would get to perform at the south London venue.
Backed by three musicians – drummer Brad Weber plus multi-instrumentalists Ryan Smith and John Schmersal – Caribou’s set consisted mainly of songs from his 2014 album ‘Our Love’, one of NME’s albums of last year.
