This April, Canadian electronic artist Dan Snaith’s breakthrough record, Up In Flames, turns 10 years old. Snaith’s original label, The Leaf Label, will mark the occasion by reissuing the album along with two other early Caribou releases for Record Store Day.
If you recall, Snaith used the moniker Manitoba when he first started out, and that’s the name that originally graced the covers of Up In Flames and his 2001 debut, Start BreakingMy Heart.Both albums will receive a re-branding for this latest reissue, making this the first time they’ve been available on vinyl under the Caribou moniker. The first effort officially released under Caribou following a lawsuit by former-The Dictators frontman Richard “Handsome Dick” Manitoba, 2005′s The Milk of Human Kindness, will also be faithfully reissued.
Limited edition colored-vinyl versions of all three records will be available on Record Story Day 2013, April 20th. Boring ol’ black vinyl versions will be made available on May 6th. A CD copy will come packaged with each LP. Below, revisit “Kid You’ll Move Mountains”, off of Up In Flames.
