Description & tracklisting

“It’s only three songs long, but the weight, power and beauty of L.A. Salami’s The City Nowadays feels like a double album.” – DJ Booth

‘The City Nowadays’ is the debut single from L.A Salami – an energetic tumble of ideas and influences, mixing beat poetry, chain-gang blues, hip-hop and pithy one-liners. As LA explains, “I call my music postmodern blues. I’ve always loved the blues, and I think of this album as my version of blues songs. ‘The City Nowadays’ is like that.”

“I want to portray modern life using the past as a vehicle,” L.A. muses “I love Sixties and Seventies music, that’s where my heart is. But I don’t want it to sound of the past, I want it to speak of now.’
