Lout Promotions presents
MNNQNS (Pronounced Mannequins) from Rouen, France, were brought together by their shared tastes in post-punk and pubs. Taking influence from heavyweights like The Fall, Television and Sonic Youth, MNNQNS are a compelling force of tightly woven guitars, enveloping feedback and singer Adrian D’Epinay’s deadpan, at times sermonic vocals.

Shana Cleveland (La Luz)
+ Samana Music
Shana Cleveland has been beguiling listeners for years in her role as the superlative frontwoman for elastic surf rockers La Luz. Now Cleveland is evolving her sound on the new solo full-length Night of the Worm Moon, a serene album that flows like a warm current while simultaneously wresting open a portal to another dimension.
As much a work of California sci-fi as Octavia Butler’s Parable novels, Night of the Worm Moon incorporates everything from alternate realities to divine celestial bodies. Inspired in part by one of her musical idols, the Afro-futurist visionary Sun Ra (the album’s title is a tip of the hat to his 1970 release Night of the Purple Moon), the record blends pastoral folk with cosmic concerns.
Cleveland dreamt up this premise while living in Los Angeles, a city where–as deftly explored on La Luz’s recent Floating Features–reality and fantasy casually co-exist. One particularly evocative scene laid the groundwork for Night of the Worm Moon’s psychedelic undercurrents. As Cleveland tells it, “Shortly after I moved to Los Angeles I went to a hip hotel to watch a poolside screening of a documentary about a local alien-worshiping cult. Out front celebrities were getting out of the backs of cars and rushing past autograph hounds into some roped-off room where a secret dinner was about to commence. In the lobby a woman was being paid to exist inside a glass box. [Then] a car dressed as a spaceship pulled up in front to release 30 white doves into the sky above Sunset Boulevard.”
Appropriately enough, Night of the Worm Moon was recorded during a rare cosmic occurrence: 2017’s solar eclipse. “We took a break from recording during [the] totality and looked at the sun’s image through a piece of cardboard projecting onto a garbage can,” Cleveland says. “When we came back inside the studio was covered in dozens of tiny crescent suns, refracted from a mirrored disco ball that [engineer Johnny Goss] had hanging in a window.” Abetting Cleveland during the recording process was a familiar gallery of co-conspirators: multi-instrumentalist Will Sprott of Shannon & the Clams, original La Luz bassist Abbey Blackwell, Goss, pedal steel player Olie Eshelman, and Kristian Garrard, who drummed on Cleveland’s previous solo effort (with then-backing band The Sandcastles), 2011’s Oh Man, Cover the Ground.
But whereas that album was internal and contemplative, Night of the Worm Moon occupies a different, vibrant kind of headspace. UFO sightings, insect carcasses, and twilight dimensions are all grist for Cleveland’s restless creativity, and they and other inspirations collide beautifully on the album’s 10 kaleidoscopic tracks–a spacebound transmission from America’s weirdo frontier.

+ The Grand Nowhere + Adalia
Flight Brigade’s sound is as distinctive as it is unique. Infectious melodies and hooks flow through songs that at times exude fierce energy, and at others gentle poignancy. With grand orchestral sweeps embracing crunching, anthemic guitars, vocal harmonies, strings and vintage synths, their explosive performances feel like it’s their last day on earth! Made up of family members and childhood friends, their bond shines through in their live shows.
Festival appearances have included Glastonbury, Bestival, The Great Escape, Beautiful Days, Blissfields, and Boomtown as well as Reeperbahn in Germany. Named one of Time Out’s ‘Rising Stars’, radio play has included, Dan O’Connell Radio X; Steve Lamacq & Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music; Gary Crowley, Bob Harris and Janice Long on BBC Radio 2. Their songs have also been used on ‘Made In Chelsea’, Channel 4’s ‘Sunday Brunch’ and E4’s “Tattoo Fixers”
Whilst touring their debut album Flight Brigade caught the ear of esteemed producer Chris Porter (George Michael, Elton John, Bowie) and were invited to record their second album at The Visconti Studio. Preceded by singles “Fury Road” and “Tinderbox”, the album “Chased by Wolves” is due for release 13th September 2019 on Rebel Cinema Records.
Support comes from Brighton Indie Rock band The Grand Nowhere who fall in line with something similar to The Killers or Radiohead or even elements of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, plus Adalia, also based in Brighton, and citing influences as diverse as Panic At The Disco, Evanesence, Joan Jett and Jim Steninman.
