Crate Minds: Cameron Bird from Architecture In Helsinki

Architecture In Helsinki are well known for their impecable taste both artistically and otherwise so it only seemed fitting to ask them to select a few album covers for Crate Minds. Below frontman Cameron Bird offers a collection gathered from travels far and wide with a few streams to take you there.

Architecture In Helsinki's forthcoming album 'Moment Bends' is available for pre order at JB Hi Fi and iTunes.


"What's not to like about this record? It's the possibly greatest Summer Italo/Euro Pop track of all time and then there's the cover ... The ultimate retro-futurist lounge setting with accompanying hi-tech cocktails = Paradise."

Blanc De Blanc.

"Bought this off of a dude in the Netherlands without hearing it first. Sometimes a cover is worth the risk. Turned out the jam was smoking hot. I'm not sure which planet these ladies came from, but I want to go there and meet up with their tailor."

Colonel Abrams

"It doesn't get much more provocative than The Colonel entangled in a pink neon rope. Pretty much a no-brainer at a record fair when you stumble across a record like this. I recently had a chat with Toni Toni Lee about our mutual admiration of this cover, so this is dedicated to him."

Francis Lai

"This is a very special record cover. The kind of record cover that you stare at intensely whilst listening to it. Strangely, the mysterious gaze, and that purple body suit perfectly encapsulate the sultry sounds within."

Francis Lai - New York by modularpeople


"Only 3 good-looking French men would have the guts to wear dress shoes with tracksuits. Definitely one of the most stylish record covers ever made. Also love how much the guy on the left looks like Keith Haring."
