Mary Ocher returns with two drummers! 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 + Your Government will be hitting the East Coast, Midwest, parts of Canada and the South with a spectacular blend of audio-visual components, synthesizers, and heaps of percussion.

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 Hans Joachim 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*. The additional 10″ vinyl Faust Studio Sessions and Other Recordings is a co-release of Klangbad with Swedish label Sing A Song Fighter. A special tape edition was released on the US label Related Records. Her previous solo release was produced by Canadian psych rock’n’roll guru King Khan.
