Salami Rose Joe Louis – California – Pop
Not only is her name intriguing Salami Rose Joe Louis, this petite princess from the Bay Area produces music that borders on hypnotic sophistication. Very soothing. A lovely way to get a morning started is with “Nostalgic Montage”, her latest offering. The track is infused with elegant whimsy interlaced with a brush of a Wednesday afternoon California sea breeze.
Another song that captured my attention was “I Miss You So”. She does this live in a bedroom studio adding a twinkle of keys and pedal sound design. Keep to the time of the metronome, she thumb picks her pale red Fender with enticing precision creating an ascending sonic sound full of atmospheric grooves. She stands to sing clad in a pair of Mom jeans with her saggy sage sweater casually tucked into the corners . Her milk chocolated brown hair swept up in a casual updo. She is a bit of thing but grooves to her own bold beats. A casual toss to the chanteuses of yesterday but with a modern psychedelic broad based movement. SRJL seems pleased with her production and jumps up to say Who can say? Who an say? in a whisper of a voice. I say YAY.
She has teamed up with independent LA based record label Brainfeeder. She accompanied Toro Y Moi on his March adventure.
