Melbourne, Australia based guitarist Bonnie Mercer is set to release Mystic Decade 2007 - 2017: a retrospective of solo recordings due out on Psychic Hysteria December 13, 2018.

In these pieces (many of which have previously appeared on compilations in Australia & North America), Bonnie explores the worlds of unrestrained feedback and hypnotically evolving sonic guitar experiments. Her sound is instantly recognisable - warm, loud and earth shattering; simultaneously subtle and compelling, beautiful and powerful.

A captivating solo performer, Bonnie has also played in a long list of both Australian and international bands, and has toured and collaborated with many more across a long and successful career spanning more than two decades.

Get one track now when you pre-order the cassette at bonniemercer.bandcamp.com, or psychichysteria.com.

Mystic Decade is out Thursday December 13 and launches that night at Long Play in Fitzroy North.
