Caribou

Start Breaking My Heart

Start Breaking My Heart was originally released under the name Manitoba in 2001 by The Leaf Label. Dan Snaith's debut album, Start Breaking My Heart, is spliced with arcs of rainbow melody, hopscotch percussion patterns, and playground children laughing. Humanity and nature are strong threads through this album: beauty and mystery are revealed in the mundane and ordinary. It's kind of a distillation of those rare moments when you look around and feel a strange glow of contentment - some friends called over unexpectedly, your room is tidy for once and not strewn with leftover apple cores, banana skins and orange peel.

Special edition double CD reissue of the first Manitoba album Start Breaking My Heart, now re-branded as Caribou. Disc 1 is all of 2001’s Start Breaking My Heart while disc 2 includes all the tracks from the People Eating Fruit EP, the Paul’s Birthday 12” and the Give'r EP as well as all three tracks from the infamous If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport EP. It's the first time most of this material has been available on CD.
