Ok, we know the holidays are over but would someone please ship us down a bucket of that holy, holy Edmonton water? The city seems to be on a real creative streak lately and we’re more than a little jealous over at Mint HQ! Not to worry though, because we’re happy to announce our brand new relationship with Edmonton’s Faith Healer!
Led by principal songwriter Jessica Jalbert, we’re excited to be working with this Edmontonian whose melancholic meanderings have helped her carve out a unique sound while lending a hand in local faves Tee-Tahs, Jom Comyn, and the Renny Wilson Punk Explosion. Following the success of 2011’s self-released solo debut, Brother Loyola, the introspective songwriter set to work on penning another collection of inward looking dream pop played with laid back bravado.
Engineered under the masterful watch of whip-smart producer—and fellow Mintie—Renny Wilson, the two bonded over their mutual affection for dreamy ‘60s garage rock and swaggering ‘70s singles while in the studio. Hinting at a slightly spacier sound, Cosmic Troubles will arrive March 31st in LP and digital (apologies to our few remaining cd loving fans).
Faith Healer - Cosmic Troubles
Out: March 31st, 2015
"Early single 'Again' boasts a swaggering rhythm section, brightly shining Summer Of Love guitar leads, and hypnotic vocals out of an old French pop record. It’s impossible to tell if this song is floating or sauntering, but it’s easy to discern that it’s great." - Stereogum
