We let taste maker and champion blogger, Yimmy Yayo take over Modular People for a post and let him delve a little deeper into his musical past. The subject, a few crates of hand-me-down records.
The album art adorning Klaxons' upcoming LP numero dos Surfing the Void has turned more than a few heads, all thanks to the already-iconic image of bandmember Jaime Reynolds' cat Orphee bravely donning an astronaut's space suit. It's only fitting that Simon Taylor-Davies shares with us the album covers he thinks are worthy of being tagged 'iconic', all from his personal collection.
Sydney-based Independent curator Joseph Allen Shea (Izrock/Monster Children) took the time to chat to us about a different kind of eye candy - his favourite record sleeves - from worn and torn hand me downs to striking contemporary releases.
Sydney's one and only Graz took the painstaking task of selecting his all time record sleeves from his jumbo collection and by doing so, raising the Crate Minds stakes. Enjoy.
Melbourne designer Leif Podhajsky was responsible for the blissed-out imagery associated with Tame Impala's InnerSpeaker and its first single, "Solitude Is Bliss". Leif shares a bunch of the covers that have caught his eye over time from his personal collection.
Ryan and Leo take some time out from recording the debut Canyons LP in their Sydney studio to wax lyrical about their favourite wax's sleeves in this next installment of Crate Minds.
