Lindsay Olsen, better known as Salami Rose Joe Louis, will release a new album on Flying LotusBrainfeeder.

Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, Olsen explores ideas of multiverses and climate change through the lens of jazz, rock, and hip-hop, and vocals. She signed to Brainfeeder to release 2019’s Zdenka 2080 and 2020’s Chapters of Zdenka, which were packed with short bursts of experimental pop, abstract beats, and bedroom R&B songs that described a future dystopian Earth in the year 2080 that has been mis-managed by unethical governments and corporations.

As on previous releases, Olsen primarily worked alone to write, record, produce, and mix this record on her beloved Roland MV-8800 music workstation, but she did bring in some of her favourite musicians: Soccer96, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Juuwah, Brijean, Sergio Machado Plim, Danalogue, Jason Lindner, Dakim, and Dan Nicholls.

“I am a very introverted producer which has sometimes hindered me from pursuing collaborations in the past as I am shy to work with others in person,” Olsen says. “Having the opportunity to collaborate via the internet was a wonderful experience and led to some beautiful connections and new friendships.”

The title track, “Akousmatikous” featuring Soccer96) comes with an animated video directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Carlos López Estrada.

The album artwork is by Winston Hacking, best known for his collaborations with Flying Lotus, Run The Jewels, Animal Collective, Andy Shauf, and BADBADNOTGOOD.
