Time Goes By - New Performance Video Released

So while the winter wiles away, we have gotten a camera and an idea to get some of our unreleased music out into the warm public gaze.  Last week we released a live version of our song Time Goes By performed on maschine and bass utilizing some funky bass riffs and fingerstlye drumming!  Check out the video and share it.  While you are listening, if you have not downloaded the album Suspicious Cricket, do so at music.ekkomouse.com.  

See the live performance of Time Goes By below, and we will be properly releasing the song very soon on our upcoming EP that is yet unnamed.  We are hard at work and will be putting out some new tunes very soon!  


Ekkomouse 2.0

We are excited to have been working on some new material while in hibernation.  Too busy to post on this platform, but now we are rebooted and feeling the promise of warmer weather.  Armed with new gear, new songs and a killer new mindset, we would like to invite you to stick around and explore our new videos and music.  In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a new video each week.  Our videos will consist of new songs, jamming in the studio, funny situations, opinions and more.  So without further ado, here is a little jam we did to help knock the dust off.

Friday, Halloween and Music

We have been hard at work on some new tracks and are going to be taking some time to finish an EP for release.  You may have heard a couple of the songs if you came out to one of our last couple shows.  Speaking of which, we will be postponing any additional shows til we get this recording completed.  We have plans for a couple tracks, videos and more!  I am looking forward to Halloween coming up!  I hope to see lots of crazy costumes this weekend so hit us up if you are partying halloween style!

Weekend Recap - Marathon and Rockufest!

So we had a busy weekend!  We were excited to play the Flat as a Pancake Race for the Cure Marathon in Hazelwood.  It was tough to get up at 5am to get everything setup early enough to beat the runners but we managed.  Once setup was complete and we started playing, everyone was very friendly and we enjoyed the time we played.  Unfortunately we had generator problems and had to cut the set short, but it was fun regardless.  

 

We also had the privilege of being selected to perform at this years Rockufest at Atomic Cowboy!  They had two stages setup, one outdoor and one in the Demo and an alternating set of local performers.  There was a lot of good music there and I encourage everyone to come out again next year.   This was the third year they held Rockufest!  

 

Two shows in a day was a new experience for us and I think the shows both went well!   We do not have any other shows scheduled currently and are looking forward to getting some new music and videos out in the near future!

New Video for So Strange!

We have just completed and released a video for our song So Strange.  The video was the result of a weekend of shooting and hanging out with some friends and turned out really great!  We are a diy band so true to our nature we were responsible for all shooting, editing, props, etc.  We are excited to share it with you and hope that you feel its worth sharing! 

If you do share the video, you will be entered to win a free Ekkomouse T-shirt and CD!  No purchase necessary, however, you can also enter by downloading our album for FREE, its titled Suspicious Cricket and is available here.

Also we would like to invite everyone out to a show at Lemmon's at 5800 Gravois, St. Louis MO 63116.  We will be playing on September 21 later in the evening.  We are playing with the matter, Uptown Downers and Axis Denied.  This should be a good show so come out, only a $5 cover.  

Ekkomouse added to Rockufest Lineup Sept 28!

We have just been added to the Rockufest lineup and we are excited!  This will be our first year playing at Rockufest and I'm sure this will be the best one yet.  Here is some info from their website: 

 

Rock U Festival or Rock University Festival is a all-ages event lasting twelve hours that is dedicated to promoting unity in the Saint Louis rock-n-roll community. It will take place at Atomic Cowboy on Saturday, September 28th in 2013. The event will feature three stages of rock music simultaneously with over 40 bands/artists ranging from Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative, Punk, Metal, Rap/Rock, Acoustic and Electronic for example. The festival’s attendees and artists alike will range in various age groups, ethnicities, back rounds, belief systems and lifestyles, not to mention genres of rock. Our goal is to have an all-ages show where the “next generation” of bands perform in the same venue as “veteran bands”! A portion of the third annual event’s proceeds will go to Play It Forward.

Remix for My Midnight Heart by Ekkomouse

Ok so I am into audio from all angles, writing, playing, recording, mixing and remixing.  This song was offered up for a remix contest and I thought her voice was really good so I decided to enter and remix the track.  Take a listen to the original and then to my remix and let me know what you think.

First Show at Lemmons was Great!

So we got to finally try out our new material on stage at Lemmons last night.  It was our first time on an official stage in over a year.  It was also our first time with the new 2 man lineup!    We are proud to say the show was a success!  We had lots of great people come out to watch us perform and the feedback was very positive.  We want to say thanks to everyone who came out!  

New songs underway and shows in the works.

Whats up everyone!

We are starting work on some new songs that may or may not become an album.  We are toying with the idea of releasing songs individually or maybe as an ep.  Either way, we are moving right along in the song department.  

In further news, we are talking with a few venues to schedule some shows starting in January.  As we get dates set, we will be updating all of our sites so keep an eye out.  If you have any venue suggestions, even if its a house party or other non-professional venue, definitely hit us up!

Oh and heres a song for the day, the album is free, share it!

Get the new album FREE for a limited time!

Yes that is right, after learning how to sing, drum and play guitar and bass for decades as well as hours of learning about audio production, mixing and mastering, we are proud to announce, we have attained a level as musicians where money doesn't matter.  So act now to get the new album Suspicious Cricket for no cost (unless you want to pay).  The only thing we ask is if you download it, is to tell at least 3 people to check it out and download it too.  We are are brand new and obscure so we need all the help we can get spreading the word.  We are getting the live show together as well as new music so keep your ears peeled.
