Salami Rose Joe Louis, the San Francisco Bay Area musician, composer and producer, has recently signed (early March) to the Brainfeeder label, the LA based founded by Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus). Her brand of chill and lounge atmospherics and songwriting will be a good fit for the label who has more than own share and history of it. She has been in the Bay Area and its surrounding areas throughout the past decade as part of the Hot Record Societe label. Apparently this led to an opening spot for Toro Y Moi on the California leg of his tour in late 2018.
Moving into 2019, she signed with Brainfeeder in March and released the new single ‘Nostalgic Montage’ which you can watch above. Afterwards, she seemingly immediately headed off for a brief March European tour opening for veteran UK based The Cinematic Orchestra. See the dates above.
“This is truly a dream come true on every level,” says Salami Rose Joe Louis (speaking to the Brainfeeder site). “Many of the artists on Brainfeeder have been my musical heroes for years and to join a collective comprising of such visionaries is an ultimate fantasy. I greatly admire the fearlessness and creative integrity of the artists on Brainfeeder: they are willing to take risks, ask important questions, and let their freakiness shine through, which to me is paramount and inspires a generation to challenge the script.”
‘Nostalgic Montage’ is a sneak peak into a multidimensional cast of characters she has created for her upcoming album. “I hope it resonates with existential questions about home, identity, future, and self awareness,” she says. In addition, Salami’s music may remind listeners of the eccentric spirit of Shuggie Otis, Captain Beefheart and Stereolab at their most whimsical, fused with the hazy Californian sunshine. “I remember the first time listening to George Clinton as a kid,” she recalls. “It was as if a portal to a new dimension of existence opened up. If in my career, I can even come a tiny bit close to opening up dimensions for listeners, I will be a happy human!”
