London four-piece, Telegram will release new single Aeons on their own Gram Gram label on the 10th of July.

Channelling their love of Roxy Music, Syd Barrett, krautrock and late proto-punk to great effect, we’ve already posted the A side here, and the flipside is the band’s unique take of Needles In The Camel’s Eye, from Brian Eno’s classic 1973 album Here Comes The Warm Jets.

Speaking on their version of the track, frontman Matt Saunders says: ‘Eno once described Needles in the camel’s Eye as “an instrumental with singing on it” and you can’t argue with that! Nor can we deny this be a favorite of ours. we played it so much from the record that I think we inevitably got bored of hearing it like that, so we started playing it live instead‘.

The Great Escape - A PlaylistToday, Chris T Popper and I are heading south to Brighton and our first visit to the Great Escape festival.

There are a whole host of bands we’re looking forward to seeing, from the South American punk-pop of Las Kellies, the angst of Gambles, the spectral folk of Mirel Wagner and the junkyard blues of the Amazing Snakeheads, to the stoned slacker indie of Dune Rats and the growling garage of Theo Verney.

Perhaps best of all though is that element of surprise, the anticipation of stumbling across something new that makes an event like this such good fun. And there is plenty of scope for that here with over 400 bands playing sets. Happy days.

Until then, have a listen to some of the highlights that we have already picked out – these are all high on our must-see list…a twenty five song salute!

Videos of the Day

Start the week with a clutch of excellent videos from psych-rockers Gringo Star (and their animated film for new track Find A Love), from Keaton Henson for You (taken from his excellent album Birthdays), and from explosive punk rockers Radkey, more top notch animation to accompany Romance Dawn.

We have even more brilliant animation, or to be precise claymation, for Gentleman Hall’s Every Morning, and lastly London four piece Telegram channel their love for Eno, Syd Barrett, krautrock and late proto-punk to good effect on their video for debut single Follow.
