La Luz’s Shana Cleveland melts faces in new video; solo album out this week

La Luz singer Shana Cleveland releases her terrific new solo album Night of the Worm Moon this Friday. Where the music she makes with her band is dreamy surf, the somnambulistic qualities really come to the forefront with the spooky, otherworldly folk she makes on her own. Her breathy, ethereal voice works so well in this setting, and the songs are great too. She just directed the video for the album’s “Face of the Sun,” with interesting, trippy origins. “For this video we filmed a shot-by-shot remake of a public domain video about a day-in-the-life of a 70s stoner that I stumbled upon years ago and haven’t been able to get out of my head since. Then I edited the footage down and added the extended face melting scene with the help of Lauren Corden, a DIY-special-effects wizard who had the brilliant idea of making a mold of the main character’s head and recreating it in wax, Lauren also handmade the eyeballs and wig which blows my mind.” Melt away with this one, which premieres in this post, below.

Shana has a few solo shows on the West Coast this month before hooking up with The Mountain Goats for their North American tour. All dates are listed below.
