Don’t forget: Phono del Sol is today!

What are you doing today?

Phono del Sol: ‘Weird’ is precisely what Salami Rose Joe Louis is aiming for

You can call Salami Rose Joe Louis a master chef. She uses rather simple ingredients — piano, guitar, bass, drums, keys — but the concoctions are complex and plentiful. Over two albums, son of a sauce! and Zlaty Sauce Nephew, the Bay Area-based producer/composer has brewed over 50 tracks of experimental, soulful, intricate sauce, and we’re all for every sampling she has to offer. “I’m pretty haphazard, as you can probably tell,” she laughs over the phone. “I have like all these one-minute songs.
