Slauson Malone 1 Announces Excelsior LP
Jasper Marsalis, AKA: Slauson Malone 1, announces his new album, Excelsior, will drop on October 6th via Warp Records. Among the tracks within the album, “New Joy,” is an exploration of finding pleasure from submission, complemented by visuals crafted by the talented hand of Parker Corey of By Storm/Injury Reserve fame, and Marsalis himself. The forthcoming album also includes previously-released single “Voyager,” which was accompanied by a music video directed by Ryosuke Tanzawa that spoke to the period of aimlessness following the release of his 2019 full-length A Quiet Farwell, 2016-2018 (Crater Speak), before he moved to Los Angeles.
Following a tour run on the West Coast alongside King Krule and in close succession to the Excelsior album launch, Slauson Malone will kick off a solo headlining tour in the US.
Excelsior is inspired by everything from composer Wendy Carlos, to the similarities between falling out of love and a nuclear half-life. The album takes the form of a collection of personal essays, with vignettes that intertwine and stand-alone, but ultimately serve the purpose of forming Slauson Malone 1’s most personal music work to date.
