VON SCHLEICHER, KATIE: Bleaksploitation Cassette
Katie Von Schleicher "Bleaksploitation" Cassette (Ba Da Bing)
Brooklyn musician Katie Von Schleicher's Ba Da Bing debut 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. Katie's voice sinks like anchors and rises like a phoenix, wrestling its way through its very own form of basement tapes. Seventies piano rock provides the core, sad lyrics form the shell.
