EQ Chart (Your Essential Playlist) - RebekkaMaria Is No. 1 With "Corollaceous"


This week was a lot of fun EQs, although I am getting slightly jealous reading all the SXSW tweets from my favorite pop bloggers who are out in Texas and getting to go to great gigs this week.  This has just confirmed that I need to be there next year - although a lot of these acts who are playing do end up coming to London at some point or another, I think the setting and the fact that so many music lovers are there will add to the excitement.  Next year - Austin or bust!

Here in Londontown, I got to see Loebeat do great little gig in Shoreditch which was great - even Pixie Lott showed up!  We bonded over Haloumi cheese and diet cokes afterwards.  Last night I went to Boy George's single launch party for "Amazing Grace" and it was a lot of fun.  Boy delivered a great DJ set which included "Dreamer" by Livin Joy and "Whoop There It Is" by Tag Team which was hilarious.  Unexpectedly and excitedly, I got to meet Adam Lambert very briefly too - man, he's tall!  Adam is here for meetings (and partying) and finally planning his assault on the UK which I am very excited about!

I also should let you big apple readers know that I'll be coming to New York City from April 8th - 16th to do some blogging in a different locale and to meet as many of you as possible.  I'm very excited about this trip as I need to do a spot of shopping, drinking and socializing in the city that never sleeps.  I've even pencilled in a chat with Kimberley Locke to gab about her new single "Strobe Light" - tre exciting!

A few notes about the websites - We decided to open up EQ Trax to everyone now as we think we worked out a lot of the kinks based on your great feedback.  We have some really good free downloads over there in way of KCAT, new hotties Locnville, Penguin Prison, Estelle, Lady Gaga, Sugababes and Boy George - so go grab them!  Mandy has been doing a fab job at keeping EQ Trax updated with the free mp3s that are 100% artist and industry approved!  We also have some amazing competitions going on over on the Facebook Fan page (discussion tab) where you can win Boy George signed picture discs and Sugababes "Sweet 7" Limited Edition boxsets - so make sure you are a fan and get over there and get socializing with each other!

So right now, it's Sunday morning and my end of week soundtrack is the amazing "Sunshine And Other Misfortunes" by The Candle Thieves and "Earth Vs. The Pipettes" which surprisingly is very good!  If there is one song that I can't stop listening to, that is "Corollaceous" by RebekkaMaria - in fact, the whole "Sister Sortie" album is very good.  I just can't stop playing it and that is why it's the EQ number one this week, with "Mayday" by Tinashe coming in a close second.  I've played "Fembots" by Robyn about 20-gazillion times too...but with that, on with your Top 50 countdown of essential tracks to seek out this coming week...
