Mary Ocher - The West Against The People
Berlin psychedelic pop craftswoman and experimental vocalist, Mary Ocher returns with an all encompassing new album, her darkest yet, in times of confusion. It is a document on social indignation and the deconstruction of our identities as citizens. ‘The West Against The People’ produced with Hans Joachim Irmler (of Faust) is Mary's fifth full length release, and second on Krautrock veteran's label Klangbad. The new recordings feature tracks with her two drummers, Your Government, as well as collaborations with avant-garde legends Die Tödliche Doris, Felix Kubin and Julia Kent (of Rasputina / Anthony and The Johnsons).
“Mary Ocher gives me the chills, she frightens me with her feral soul. Her sound is of a true outsider artist, immaculately self-possessed… Time to set her loose on the world. I’m so happy she exists. Set me free Mary!" – Karen O, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
