Salon İKSV has been taking good music from its house in Beyoğlu to bigger stages of town for a while as Gezgin Salon (Salon on Wheels). This time, with the support of +1, Gezgin Salon welcomes us with a non-stop open-air festival to last for a weekend. The captains in the cabin as we ascend from the forest to the sky will be Moderat with their minimal Berlin techno, L'Impératrice with their soulful funk, the band of sweet sorrows, Cigarettes After Sex, and our ‘habibi’, Tamino. For now!
Come, join us as we make Parkorman our home, our village to enjoy two full days of music.
Saturday (25 June): Moderat (live), L'Impératrice
Sunday (26 June): Cigarettes After Sex, Tamino
When Modeselektor [Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary] and Apparat [Sascha Ring] decided to become one, Moderat was born. Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than these two heavyweights. In 2002, Sascha, Gernot and Sebastian met for the first time. Moderat laid their foundation in 2003 with the EP Auf Kosten der Gesundheit and then needed six years to put together the album Moderat. Following the soberly called II and III in 2013 and 2016, Moderat announced that they’d be taking an extended break following a final concert in their hometown of Berlin in front of 17.000 people.
Yet in 2022 they return with a new album and a new live show. MORE D4TA, the group’s fourth album, arrives more than six years after its predecessor, yet its contents are quintessentially Moderat. Created largely during a time when touring (and most traveling) was off the table, MORE D4TA is an album that wrestles with feelings of isolation and information overload – issues that have become particularly pronounced recently. After spending the better part of two decades making music together, they’ve carved out a sound and aesthetic that are all their own, and MORE D4TA showcases a group that’s creatively recharged and fully dedicated to its craft.
Since the release of Matahari three years ago, L’Impératrice has been living in a permanent state of vertigo. That debut album was followed by a whirlwind tour through the band’s native France, and then onto Italy, Mexico, California... But not before two sold out nights at the legendary Olympia in Paris. It’s a journey that has broadened the horizons of all of those who sail in the Empress.
The world around us has altered in the last three years, and things have changed in the world of L’Impératrice too. Their latest, 2021 release Tako Tsubo is a breakup album in which Matahari’s romantic streak has made way for a landscape more anchored in reality. Tako tsubo means ‘octopus trap’ in Japanese. It is no fictional disorder, the phenomenon is called the broken heart syndrome. It weakens the heart’s main pumping chamber brought on by intense emotional distress: an earthquake or a natural disaster, or something less (literally) earth shattering like the loss of a loved one or the angst felt when one is spurned by a lover. Modern science is yet to find a cure, but L’Impératrice will surely ease the symptoms.
‘I’ve always avoided studios,’ says Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez. ‘There’s something special about recording out in the world, some kind of X-factor that comes from the character and atmosphere of wherever it is that you’re working that becomes essential to the feeling of the music.’ That marriage of sound and setting is the heart and soul of Gonzalez’s riveting sophormore album Cry. Recorded in a stunning house on the Spanish island of Mallorca, the collection reflects the uneasy beauty, erotic longing, and stark minimalism of the space, all smooth lines and soft light.
The week Gonzalez and his bandmates – drummer Jacob Tomsky, bassist Randy Miller, and keyboardist Phillip Tubbs – arrived in Mallorca to begin recording Cry happened to be the very week that their long-awaited, self-titled debut LP hit shelves in 2017. The full-length collection earned international raves out of the gate, with The Independent praising it as ‘intimate and spectral’. The Guardian dubbed the band’s ‘noir dreampop’ as ‘among 2017’s best’. In addition to being a critical smash, the record was also a streaming juggernaut, approaching one billion plays across all platforms and landing the band dates on five continents along with festival slots from Primavera and Best Kept Secret to Lollapalooza and Reading & Leeds.
Of Belgian, Egyptian and Lebanese heritage, Tamino first appeared with his EP ‘Habibi’ that featured ‘Indigo Night’ with Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood on bass guitar. He was only 21 when he wrote and shaped his first album of visceral, sit-up-and-listen quality, called Amir. Although the majority of the playing heard on Amir is Tamino himself, he is joined by a collective of Arabic musicians based in Brussels called Nagham Zikrayat. The firka (orchestra) is predominantly made up of professional musicians from the Middle East, most of which have refugee status having predominantly fled from Iraq and Syria. Over the course of Amir, Tamino captures a range of emotions from romance to desolation and almost everything in between. It’s mood music, painted in a number of different shades.
