Press release:

The Audio Foundation proudly presents the 'queen outsider of Berlin Avant-Pop' Berlin-based Russian artist, performer, and poet Mary Ocher. Fresh off the recording of a new album and touring over 25 countries with the much celebrated "The West Against The People" and its companion release "Faust Studio Sessions and Other Recordings”, Mary Ocher is back in New Zealand for selected dates following a tour of North America and Europe.

Over the past decade Mary Ocher 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.
