Als Künstlerin besitzt sie eine Schrulligkeit, wie man sie vom seltsamen US-Folk kennt. Ähnlich der wunderbar markig singenden Joanna Newsom setzt auch Ocher ihre Stimme eigenwillig ein, ähnlich dem US-Freakbrother Devendra Banhart präsentiert sich die Ocher stets kauzig.

MARY OCHER

Avant-Pop / Experimental / Post-Punk / Art Rock / Garage Punk / Folk

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. She has released 4 studio albums on 5 labels in the past 6 years, as well as a double anthology of home recordings, 2 EPs and 2 collections of remixes. Her previous solo release was produced by Canadian Psych-Rock'n'Roll guru King Khan. The most recent, "The West Against The People" is out on Klangbad. It features solo tracks, as well as tracks with her two drummers Your Government, and elusive legends Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin. It also features an essay elaborating on the themes of the album and analyzing the current sociopolitical climate.
