Experimental political pop artist Mary Ocher returns to European stages with an exceptional new record: Approaching Singularity: Music for The End of Time.
The album is accompanied by an essay that explores authoritarianism, unruly technology, and the diverse political and ethical implications of the impending changes for humankind. While the new recordings were made with Tunng/LUMP’s Mike Lindsay and feature collaborations with Barry Burns (Mogwai), Red Axes, composer Roberto Cacciapaglia, pieces with Mary’s two drummers Your Government, and a homage to electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire.
Also performing on the night is Scotland’s unofficial pop princess Carla J Easton, fresh from the release of her fourth solo studio album ‘Sugar Honey’ on Olive Grove Records – though they have performed in and collaborated with many of our nation’s greats, including TeenCanteen, Belle & Sebastian, BMX Bandits, Hen Hoose & National Theatre Scotland.
Completing the bill is the dark clad sonic experimenter Lomond Campbell, armed only with his bank of synths, hand-built instruments and wry Scottish wit. 2023’s Interference Patterns was his fourth album to be released on One Little Independent Records.
