In Technicolor (Part 1)

A few days ago Jesse McCartney released a new EP "In Technicolor (Part 1)" It's been a while since he has put out anything, so I am pretty much over the moon about the fact that he has this new EP out.  For real you don't even understand a few years ago (2010 I think) he was supposed to release a full album "Have It All" but it got leaked and I'm pretty sure his label at the time decided not to release it anymore. (Lame.) It's on YouTube, we've already heard it, it's good...I don't understand why they won't just put it on iTunes and in stores.  I want it so bad.

Anyway if you know me at all, you probably know that I am pretty much obsessed with Jesse McCartney; I have been ever since I found out about him when I was 13.  When I say obsessed I am not even kidding.  For years he was all I would ever listen to or talk about.  Honestly drove my friends and family crazy I'm sure.

2005 he played the Wal-Mart Shareholders meeting which is held in Fayetteville, AR every year (at that time you had to be a Wal-Mart or Sam's Club employee to get in.) Which you already know about if you have read this post. Pretty sure it's open to the general public now.  I found a way to sneak in.  Good times. I met Jimmy Buffett while I was there.  Nice guy.  Shakira was there too, got to see her sound check.  She is very good live I was surprised.  Thought she was gonna be auto tuned like Britney Spears, since she does all that hip shaking and whatnot.

Back to the EP...I get very easily sidetracked.  I love it, to me some of the songs have a Michael Jackson feel to them.  I like Michael Jackson.

"In Technicolor (Part 1)" is on iTunes now.  I am about to go buy it in a few minutes (Thanks to the iTunes cards I got from my Aunt and Uncle for Christmas.) Yay!

I'm guessing he will release another EP soon as a Part 2, cause that would make sense right? Otherwise don't call it Part 1.

I'm Not "On Your Side" With This One...

December 3rd SafetySuit released a new single "On Your Side" I was totally looking forward to this, cause most of you probably know already I love SafetySuit, been there for them since pretty much the beginning.  Back in the day (2009-ish) I was sorta addicted to Twitter and it was their fault...if you go to my account I have almost 12,000 tweets.  Most of those tweets were about them or promoting in some way.  Used to love Twitter because each member had their own personal account and it was easy to talk to them whenever you felt like.  They've since deleted those personal accounts and now only share one as a band.  Which is honestly slightly my fault...I'm sure, but let's not get into that...I don't wanna talk about it.

Anyway....I don't know how to feel about this new single.  Honestly I don't think I like it.  Kinda hurts me to say that, since I've always been one of their biggest fans.  I don't like to lie though, so I'm not gonna sit here and talk something up if it's not really the way I feel.  It pretty much sucks in my opinion.

Give it a listen, see what you think:

I feel like it's a little over done and they tried too hard.  I'm not into techno/electronica type stuff.  I miss the old SafetySuit, you know circa 2008; How they sounded on the "Life Left To Go" album. Simple and sweet.  
Now it's like their trying to be Skrillex or something.  

This doesn't mean I don't like them anymore...still gonna buy the album when it releases and see them if they ever come to Little Rock again...(It's been too long, just sayin'. I kinda miss them.)
