Past song of the week / October 2022

Yes We Mystic
"Head Rush"

From the album Trust Fall

Featured track, available from October 13 to October 20

October is a bittersweet month for Yes We Mystic fans. It will bring new works from the Winnipeg-based quintet, who premiere their short concert film, Showroom, on October 17 at Cinematheque and release their third album, Trust Fall, on October 21 via German label DevilDuck Records. But it will also mark the end of their enigmatic art pop. The album features a stellar list of music friends, including Chelliot Osuntade from Julien's Daughter / Fold Paper / JayWoodSuper Duty Tough Work's Olivier Macharia, Virgo Rising, and more. Produced and engineered by mustachioed band member Adam Fuhr at his House of Wonders studio, the recording also features the work of John Paul Peters (mixing) and Cam Loeppky (mastering). If you haven't snapped up your tickets for the Oct 17 screening, you have a chance to win the very last ticket to the sold-out event via the band's Instagram. Stay tuned for the post-premiere online release of the film. You can also dial the band's toll-free Trust Fall Hotline at 1 (877) 347-5231 for an experience that's "part choose-your-own-adventure, part guided meditation, and part 'stuck on hold with the bank'". (Did we mention that they're enigmatic?) We're celebrating their latest single "Head Rush" this week so press play, check out some of their recent media coverage (The Uniter, CBC's Up to SpeedIt's All Indie, Canadian Beats), and say a fond farewell to Yes We Mystic.
