Faith Healer is technically Jessica Jalbert’s solo project, although for Cosmic Troubles, her first record under the Faith Healer moniker, she worked extensively with Renny Wilson. But she made it clear in a blog post that with or without Wilson’s excellent guidance and help, she’ll make music as Faith Healer from now on. Sometimes there’s not much in a name, but in this case it seems like there might be, as Cosmic Troubles manages to balance gossamer dream pop with triangular indie-rock licks. The latest track off the record is “Infinite Returns,” which sways and soothes like a lazy afternoon. If the advent of spring had an anthem, it’d be this. Listen below.
Cosmic Troubles is 3/31 on Mint.
