Faith Healer – “Cosmic Troubles” – [Mint Records Inc.]
Canada certainly is producing some fine bands these days. I have to admit that I avoided the album for a while because of the cover (maybe it had something to do with getting a root canal), but what a pleasure to listen to the sweet voice of Jessica Jalbert joined by Renny Wilson. It’s singer-songwriter, folksy, rock, mellow, catchy, summertime sunshiny and dreamy. The harmonizations will kill you with their prettiness. They’re my new favorite feel-good band.
