After John Myrtle’s slug song, a different take on a slimy earth creature, and in a another style, an exquisite title track and first single, by the lead singer of Los Angeles psych band La Luz, from her 2019 solo album. March full moon is also known as the worm moon, because it coincides with the time of year when earthworms begin to emerge from the thawing soils, with equinox super moon is also known as a super worm moon. The other track makes a beautiful companion in this night/day combination of gentle folk and psychedelia by the singer and guitarist who also a graphic artist.

Guitar baby you’ve stumbled
Right into the blinding light
Looking to the face of the sun
Rode a midwest song
All the way to San Francisco Bay
Looking to the face of the sun

When you have all
You want so young
So hard to start anew
Still defined by who you
Were back then
But that’s no longer you.

Old friends burned bright and blew out
And now you’re still around
Looking to the face of the sun
Barflies wait in a smiling line
To ask you what it’s like
Looking to the face of the sun.

When you have all
You want so young
So hard to start anew
Still defined by who you
Were back then
But that’s no longer you.

Guitar baby you’ve stumbled
Right into the blinding light
Looking to the face of the sun
Rode a midwest song
All the way to San Francisco Bay
Looking to the face of the sun.
