Caribou Donates 150 Records From Personal Collection to London Thrift Store
Canadian electronic musician Caribou, real name Dan Snaith, pulled 150 vinyl records from his personal collection and donated them to the Dalston branch of Oxfam, a London thrift store. The store reached out to Caribou on Twitter and confirmed that the records came from him:
The store also tweeted some photos of records of vintage African music yesterday, saying that they're not available for sale just yet:
Today (May 12), they stated that in wake of the news, the store is "intensely busy so please be patient if it's not all out today, want to make sure we get fair value for such a generous donation," then linked to a few of the records they put up for sale on Amazon:
If you happen to be in London at any point this week, you might be able to get a hold of some of the Caribou-donated vinyl, since some of it might be sitting there right now and the rest will trickle out over the course of the week.
This isn't the first time Caribou's looked to share his collection with the world: He did so digitally back in January when he created a 1000-song YouTube playlist called "The Longest Mixtape - 1000 Songs For You" as a thank you to his fans.
