Stream Mary Ocher's Faust Studio Sessions And Other Recordings

November 2017

Recordings that took place at the Faust Studio over two weeks are to be released on a new 10"

Mary Ocher is a Moscow born, Tel Aviv raised songwriter, experimental vocalist and multi instrumentalist. She moved to Berlin after developing a specific love for German experimental bands and it was through a festival performance in Germany that Faust founder Hans Joachim Irmler became aware of her work. Ocher was subsequently invited to experiment and record at Irmler's studio in a small village on the Swiss border.

Faust Studio Sessions And Other Recordings is a collection of collaborations, covers and experimentations that are a product of the same sessions which resulted in her fourth studio album, The West Against The People. It features her version of “Blue Crystal Fire”, written by Robbie Basho, as well as more appearances from her frequent live associates Your Government.

It is available from 23 November 2017 via Klangbad and is ready to pre-order now.
