MIAMI - October 11, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

 Last week, Miami-based singer-songwriter Elsten Torres issued a video and streaming track for the single "Nocturno", from the album of the same name. This represents the sixth single from 2022 full-length, which the artist wrote during the depths of the pandemic. 

It is well known that nocturnal creatures have a heightened sense of hearing. Given his long and successful career as a singer-songwriter, Torres has now shown an exceptional sense of interpretation. Although his new single is open-ended lyrically, it conveys a wisdom gained through careful listening, and later analysis and expression.  

"'Nocturno' is a song about life and death and our ability to see the big picture," says the twice-nominated GRAMMY award nominee and two-time BMI award winner Elsten. "It's also about enjoying the present moment, because it is very fleeting." Much of the lyrical content includes phrases his elderly mother said to him as he cared for her during the pandemic. 

Written by Torres, "Nocturno" opens with a distinct Middle Eastern flavor courtesy of the sublime guitar work of Camilo Velandia, giving way to a sparse and moody verse. The chorus picks up with beautifully crafted harmonies and an uptick in feel. The call-and-response guitar solo here recalls some of the finest work by David Gilmour. Produced by Doug Emery, who also contributes bass and keyboards, the song was mixed by legendary Latin pop console master Sebastian Krys.

The video  - shot, directed, and edited in NY by Manolo Celi - is perfect for Halloween. Suspenseful and set in the late 19th/early 20th century in both aesthetics and costuming, it recalls Stephen King's "The Shining", complete with a creepy set of twin boys, scarce lighting, and Torres cryptically mouthing key parts of the lyric. He emerges from the dark at first, and returns to it in the end, a metaphor for the human experience, especially during the last couple of years. 

Nocturno is a record that stems from dark, precious, nostalgic, and emotionally profound moments. It represents the artist's 12th full-length release, his sixth in Spanish, and the songs featured here were written as both Elsten and the world underwent very significant changes. Not only caring for his ailing mother, Torres also lived through the end of an intense romantic relationship. These experiences inspired him to write during the time of the pandemic, not knowing it would result in a new album.

Bad CGI Gator Movie Sets a Streaming Record

Bad CGI Gator Sets a Streaming Movie Record for Full Moon Features on Amazon Prime

Bad CGI Gator has set a streaming movie record for Full Moon Features on Amazon Prime.

Millions of people have been anticipating the release of Bad CGI Gator, which was arguably one of the most intriguing and fun concepts of 2023. It officially released on streaming platforms on Friday, Nov. 24, on Amazon Prime. Charles Band, CEO and founder of Full Moon Features and producer of Bad CGI Gator, says, "We've had our best day of TVOD sales/rentals ever on Amazon for Bad CGI Gator! I’ve long been against the overuse of CGI in genre films and, in many ways, this movie is a fun, tongue-in-cheek antidote to that. When done right, CGI is a great tool to accent special effects. When done wrong … well, we get Bad CGI Gator."

Sharknado, Slither, Eight Legged Freaks, Piranha; streaming services are saturated with ridiculous flicks, featuring extra-large monsters wreaking havoc à la bad CGI. Now, Bad CGI Gator writer Zalman Band, director Danny Draven, producer Charles Band, and Full Moon Features are taking this pop culture phenomenon and poking fun. Six college grads on Spring Break get a cabin in the swamplands of Georgia. Once there, they decide to throw their school laptops in a backyard lake in an act of youthful defiance, which unknowingly turns a lurking alligator into the dreaded and insatiable Bad CGI Gator.

Rotten Tomatoes Review: "Sometimes you just need some good entertaining fluff, and Bad CGI Gator is just that."
