Berlin-based Russian artist Mary Ocher has been making compelling, politicised experimental music for over a decade. Your Guide To Revolution is a characteristically uncompromising release; a rich, eclectic tapestry of styles that fluctuate between kosmiche and traditional folk.

Centrepiece The Rubayiat Melody (Parts 1, 2 and 3) provide a sparse and textural fulcrum to the record; haunting, beautiful and disorientating. Museum Of Childhood Terror brings the atmosphere of an Argento film to mind. Ocher is a prolific songwriter who has produced a wide canon of music with a fairly broad spectrum of accessibility. Your Guide To Revolution is among the most accessible and satisfying of her releases, and perhaps a perfect entry to point to Ocher’s wider body of work.
