Rick & Morty get stabbed by clipping., Nightwish look back, Olivia Castriota has it rough and Pearl & The Oysters hit the Sunshine State in today’s Roundup. Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends:
1 | Rick & Morty alert! Would you be surprised to learn that the Deluxe Box Set version of the recently released R&M soundtrack album will be out just in time for Christmas? Yeah, didn’t think so. But here’s a pleasant little treat: An animated video for clipping.‘s upbeat little contribution Stab Him In The Throat. SEZ THE PRESS RELEASE: “Rick and Morty follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and grandson Morty into intergalactic escapades. Can the family survive Rick’s insanity and all the chaos the universe throws at them?” Get schwifty above.
2 | Apparently you can go back again. Finnish symphonic metal stalwarts Nightwish return to Oct. 21, 2005 — their final performance with singer Tarja Turunen — on their upcoming reissue of their End Of An Era DVD. Preview the song Sleeping Sun now. SEZ THE PRESS RELEASE: “Many tears flowed, yet the foundation was laid for a new beginning and the ongoing continuity of the band. What subsequently appeared as the DVD titled End Of An Era was not only the final show of their mega-selling Once tour, but also the very last joint performance with their singer Tarja Turunen. Due to all of these facets and more, the DVD will give you goose bumps many times over, yet it crowns the end of the Tarja chapter with a unique show that could hardly have been better or more spectacular.” Catch the sun:
3 | We all have bad days. New York pop singer Olivia Castriota is definitely having one in her new video for the emotional ballad Kills Me. Here’s hoping she’s having a better one today. SEZ THE PRESS RELEASE: “Very few of us keep journals with the purpose of turning it into a hit song one day, but that kind of vulnerability is why Olivia Castriota’s songwriting hits such an emotional chord. Drawing from pop and soul influences, as well as the vibrancy and grit that comes with living in New York City, Olivia brings every ounce of emotion to her latest release, Kills Me, a deeply personal single about her experiences with the cycle of a destructive relationship.” Share her pain:
4 | Bliss is where you find it. And Florida is probably as good a place as any. That’s where Parisian transplants Juliette Davis and Joachim Polack make music under the handle Pearl & The Oysters. And where you just might find yourself transported as you drift along to their dreamy new single Mercury Comet Caliente, from their upcoming Canned Music album. SEZ THE PRESS RELEASE: “If aliens saw the earth from afar, I’d like them to see there’s also positive, beautiful stuff here that makes people happy,” Davis says. “The earth is in a very bad shape right now. We need to hold onto each other and keep making art to keep the flame of human creativity lit.” Open it up:
