La Luz’s Shana Cleveland made a tremendously good solo album, Night of the Worm Moon. And the favored track here is Face of the Sun.
“you stumbled right / into the blinding light”
The mix layers well the live elements (the occasional pulse and shriek of a hand shifting on the guitar string) and combines them expertly within the subsequent layered tracks (waves of backing vocals, piling and pulling the chorus apart).
The tones are complex and complimentary. The melody is direct and absorbing. It adds up to something of significance worth logging and celebrating in the void.
