Salami Rose Joe Lewis readies new album, Zdenka 2080, on Brainfeeder

When all the cool kids at the party are talking about rock or electronica, I always try to shift things to a little genre known as…jazz fusion. What usually follows is a clearing out of the conversation when I dig into the pros and cons of Weather Report vs. Mahavishnu Orchestra.

For those who would stick around and get giddy over a little jazz fusion shop talk, Bay Area resident Lindsay Olsen has much to contribute. Her latest under the Salami Rose Joe Louis moniker, Zdenka 2080, is a sci-fi themed, 22-track odyssey mining inspiration from “the realms of fantasy as a means of illuminating concepts and truths about our own society and humanity.”

The album, out August 30 via Brainfeeder, is up for pre-order in vinyl, CD, and digital editions. Scroll down to audibly peep the double single “Octagonal Room / Cumulous Potion (For the Clouds to Sing).”
