Description

Bleaksploitation on CD

2016 release. Issued on cassette last year, Katie Von Schleicher's Bleaksploitation took the tape world by enough of a storm to thunder demand for more formats. Consequence of Sound described her songs as "like ghosts trying to communicate through a cassette deck"; Paste claims they "sound like a vintage girl group playing in the basement of a haunted house." This is exciting music from someone we'll be hearing about for a long time to come. Bleaksploitation was recorded in a dark room on a Tascam 4-track cassette machine. The result is hazy, terrifying and playful. This is what happens when well-crafted songs are made in the moment, warped, drunk on themselves. Von Schleicher's voice sinks like anchors and rises like a Phoenix, wrestling its way through its very own form of basement tapes. '70s piano rock provides the core, sad lyrics form the shell.
