Calexico takes the stage at March 2 and 3, has been described with a style called ‘desert noir.’Salon IKSV is readying to host two stars in 2013, with Calexico and Jamie Lidell newly-announced as guests in the new year.
Calexico is named after the border town of Calexico, California, and its style has been described as “desert noir.” The Arizona-based group is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi/conjunto/cumbia/Tejano music and traditional southwestern United States country music, as well as 1950s/60s jazz and 1990s/00s post-rock. The new Calexico album, “Algiers,” was released Sept. 11 on ANTI Records and CITY SLANG. Calexico will play at Salon İKSV on March 2 and 3.
Jamie Lidell is also renowned for genre-exploration, creatively layering tracks made with his voice into a microphone and performing the percussion and melody as a sequenced, beatboxing one-man band. Over these augmented voices he sings soul-inspired songs, making for energetic live performances.
Lidell often collaborates with Canadian musicians such as Gonzales, Feist and Mocky. He has also recently collaborated with British electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco for the song “Off The Map”. In 2006, he was part of a live performance collaboration with David Link and F. M. Einheit, which was released on CD as ‘Echohce’.
Lidell will be performing in Istanbul on March 23.
