After their recent album announcement Akousmatikous, which drops on May 19th via Brainfeeder, Salami Rose Joe Louis AKA: Lindsay Olsen has shared new single “Dimcola Reprise” and an accompanying music video directed by Sarah Simka Jaffe that combines their shared love of classic sci-fi, everyday adventure and laser wolves. Shot on luscious super 16mm film in the heart of the Bay Area, the escapist visual transcends time and space to tell the story of two Salamis who are galaxies apart and how the power of music can unite and save them from their anxieties and fears.

Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, Olsen 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. Her music traverses experimental pop, abstract beats and bedroom R&B connected by a sci-fi narrative.

Describing her motivations behind new single ‘Dimcola Reprise’, Olsen explains: “In the game of capitalism, the ability to ‘roll with the punches’, be resilient, suppress emotions and bounce back quickly are championed. I was reflecting on the sort of internal monologue we give ourselves to get through tricky moments and work through feelings. On the dystopian planet of this story, I imagined this internal motivator voice was some kind of pre-programmed pep talk robot that was activated every time an earthling was having a negative emotion.”

“Lindsay is a magical person I have been lucky to know since we were young, going on wild (occasionally, dangerous) adventures and dreaming up futures and stories we hoped to see in life and on screen,” explains Sarah Simka Jaffe (director). “Getting to realize this kind of sci-fi dream with her, and creating this film with the many incredible talents of our film community in the Bay Area, was an epic and deeply rewarding experience.”

Salami Rose Joe Louis’ new album “Akousmatikous” (Ah-coooz-mat-e-koi) features collaborations with Brijean (Ghostly International) and Soccer96 (a project from The Comet is Coming’s Danalogue and Betamax) plus Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Juuwah, Sergio Machado Plim, Jason Lindner, Dakim and Dan Nicholls.

The new album follows recent collaborations with Toro y Moi, Alice Phoebe Lou on her Strongboi project, a remix for Brainfeeder labelmates Hiatus Kaiyote, and writing credits on ‘Scapegoat’ from rapper Baby Keem’s acclaimed debut album.
