Fresh off the recording of a new album and touring over 20 countries with the much celebrated "The West Against The People" and its companion release "Faust Studio Sessions and Other Recordings". Mary Ocher heads to Australia for selected dates following a tour of North America and Europe.
Over the past decade Mary has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought provoking, socially andcreatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African andSouth American rhythms.
"The West Against The People" was released on H.J. Irmler's label Klangbad (of Krautrock pioneers Faust). It features collaborations with elusive legends Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin and an essay elaborating on the themes of the album and analyzing the current sociopolitical climate*. Her previous solo release was produced by Canadian Psych Rock&Roll guru King Khan.
