About Salami Joe Rose Louis

Bay Area singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Lindsay Olsen is the brilliant mind behind the warped and magical project Salami Rose Joe Louis. Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, she creates a unique experience: exploring ideas of multiverses and climate change through the lens of a fictional post-apocalyptic keyboard-toting earthling with a flashlight, a can of cashews and a hopeful optimism. Melding influences from jazz, rock and hip-hop – Shuggie Otis, Captain Beefheart, Stereolab, and R. Stevie Moore – she creates a unique blend of experimental galaxy sounds with jazz influenced vocals and keys. The former climate scientist signed with Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label to release Zdenka 2080 (2019) and Chapters of Zdenka (2020). Both collections were packed with short bursts of experimental pop, abstract beats and bedroom R&B songs connected by a sci-fi narrative describing a future dystopian Earth in the year 2080 that has been mis-managed by unethical governments and corporations. The Line of Best Fit proclaimed Zdenka 2080 “disorientating and fascinating” whilst Bandcamp described “a sweet journey into a world of pure imagination” and charted it in their Best Albums of 2019. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year 2019 at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards.

This new album follows recent collaborations with Toro y MoiAlice Phoebe Lou on her strongboi project, a remix for Brainfeeder labelmates Hiatus Kaiyote, and writing credits on Scapegoat, GRAMMY-winning rapper Baby Keem’s acclaimed debut album. Olsen has also had the honor of touring with Flying LotusThe Cinematic OrchestraTuneYardsClairoMNDSGNHomeshakeThe Comet is Coming and Still Woozy.
