Out of the blue, Dan Snaith aka Caribou decided to visit Oxfam Dalston earlier today (11th May) and donate 150 of his previously-owned records.
The charity shop tweeted Caribou directly to ask if it was indeed him who made the donation, and he promptly responded by saying: “yup! just dropped off 150 records from my collection at Oxfam Dalston. they can let you know when they’re going to be 4 sale.”
Oxfam Dalston has since previewed some of the releases, saying they’re going to work out a final value for each release before putting them on sale.
Caribou’s ‘Our Love’ LP is out now.
Caribou will play Latitude Festival (16th-19th July), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
