Gig Information

Fresh off the recording of a new album and touring over 25 countries with the much celebrated “The West Against The People” Mary Ocher comes to Wellington in September, performing in the planetarium at Space Place.

Over the past decade Mary has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought provoking, socially and creatively 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 and South 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.

Presented in association with the Goethe Institut and The Audio Foundation

Immerse:
Space Place/ Sunday 15 September/ 8.30PM, Doors open at 8PM/ $20/ Bookings essential

Few records this year, so far, are as wondrous, pointed and odd as Mary Ocher's The West Against The People. Produced with Faust's Hans Joachim Irmler, there is a dreamy motorik groove that guides some tracks — especially those with percussion duo Your Government — but the album reaches across synth-pop, psych-rock, folk and ambient music with an obsidian glaze.
