Updates and more EP reviews

by Mr. Stereo on June 23, 2014

Got a couple of great EP reviews recently, both from sites based just a quick drive up route 87 (ok maybe not that quick, and that’s another story) in Canada!

One from Replicant Ears – EP Review – http://replicantears.com/2014/06/23/album-review-stereo-off-stereo-off-ny-ep5/ that harkens the EP back to a mix of music from past decades and stating “This EP is definitely worth picking up, I’ve had it on repeat for days.” Thanks to Ryan and the team there at Replicant.

And then last week from 24OurMusic – “Stereo Off: Those Sexy Devils” – the title says enough surely…. And with a 9.8 out of 10 on the review also! – http://24ourmusic.net/2014/06/18/stereo-off/, much thanks to Patricia and everyone else over there.

It had me wondering, do we have that song that everyone mentions has their favourite? Or has it been an even split? So I looked at our review list and other mentions. And as of Late June 2014, due to reviews so far this year, the votes for favourite song per review went like this (note some reviews didn’t single one out, thus aren’t part of that count).

Photographs – 3
Bullet Time – 3
Effectual – 3
The Thrill – 3
MI6 – 3

Well, so much for seeing if reviews and feedback would help identify our top song from the EP. On a positive note, surely that means they are all keepers!

Bullet Time – Music Video from Stereo Off

by Mr. Stereo on May 30, 2014

Here is our first music video – Bullet Time, off of our first EP “Stereo Off New York EP5, aka, SONY EP5″.

Let us know what you think and thanks for all the likes and comments already. Cheers to http://www.deadredeyes.com for the making of and directing and thanks to all the people that helped out, acted in, let us use apartments, bars, etc.

The video is a bit of an homage to retro NYC circa the 70′s and 80′s perhaps, or at least that’s the vibe we were going for. In true low-budget indie spirits we were involved from creating the plot and story line, all the way down to going through all the takes and amends (in fact, our bassist even did the video editing on this) to final cuts, which is frankly as DIY as it gets.
