There is no doubt that “Echo” has to be THE catchiest tune to start 2010.  It’s just one of those glorious pop jams that I HAVE to listen to every day – at least twice.  It’s just as important as the morning cup of coffee if you ask me.  It really get’s the juices flowing.  

If you didn’t have a chance to read my interview with Girls Can’t Catch, you can do so on this link.

Also I was extremely honoured to be asked to be a guest on music industry legend Larry Flick’s US radio show “The Morning Jolt” on Sirius XM last Thursday.  We had a great time and we played songs by The Good Natured, Juvelen, MaJiKer, The Bleach Works and Parralox.  Larry even loved Parralox’s “Hotter” so much that he added it to his rotation and will be playing it again on his show again today!  

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to Larry’s show yet, you really should check it out.  You can listen to a recording of our chat below as a taster!
