Yesterday, Shana Cleveland, lead singer and guitarist of La Luz fame, announced a new solo album, Night of the Worm Moon. She also dropped a new single from said project called "Face of the Sun," which retains the dreamy, hazy quality of La Luz's work but has a distinct western edge to it. Cleveland's voice croons through, binding the surf pop fuzz with the country jangle. It's all desert, red dusty sand, cactuses, and a bright clear full moon.

In her Instagram post announcing its release, Cleveland said that Night of the Worm Moon will be "a collection of space lullabies and guitar meditations inspired by Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Michael Hurley, supernatural happenings, Los Angeles and deep country solitude." Stereogum also reports that the album was recorded during the 2017 solar eclipse, which gives a paranormal, mystical gloss to it. The record will be released on April 5 via Hardly Art.
