Huzzah! Sweet Thing pandemonium. My phone is buzzing itself off the side table with texts, BBMs, Tweets and emails about Sweet Thing "sightings"!
Matt (awesome west coast Your Yoko correspondent. Joking... almost. He's Nick's brother, silly.) shared some reviews/mentions with me this morn; check them out here:
And I found this one:
Of course, the boys have been logging MUCHOS interview hours. We watched a grueling 30 minutes of the most BORING 11:00 news last night (um, who needs a full 10 minutes of weather?!?) just to catch their 10-second spot. Worth it!!! Unfortunately, we also watched eTalk daily (even more boring celeb dribble) and their spot did not air. Maybe tonight? We'll miss it, though 'cause we'll be... at... the....
CD RELEASE PAAAAAAAARRRTY!!!!
By the way, if you haven't bought the album, you may want to consider getting it form iTunes. The EXTRAS are amazing. I'm jealous. My digi-pack is cool, but these bonuses are worth it!
- Sweet Thing - exclusive track "Please" (OMG, I LOVE this song - check out the spot at the end when Owen's voice cracks a bit, like a cry, during one of the "You gotta know" parts. So passionate.)
- The making of "Sweet Thing" the band
- In studio home video footage, recording and mixing the album in LA (edited by Morgan - it's really, really great! Almost tear-jerking in spots.)
- Dance Mother official music video
- Behind the scenes of "Dance Mother" (footage from shooting the music video)
- Album commentary per track from the band
- Tons of awesome band press shots - over 40!
- Personal photos from the studio and LA (I took some of these!)
- Handwritten lyric sheets
- Rejected album titles (various notebook scraps and pictures Sweet Thing drew in the "brainstorming" for the album title) (hilarious!!!!!!)
All for $9.99!
