Mysterious events surround two travelers, seemingly brothers, as they make their way across a remote American landscape. On the surface all seems normal, but what appears to be a simple vacation soon gives way to a dark and complex web of secrets.


Katie Von Schleicher

Released on cassette in 2015, Katie Von Schleicher’s Bleaksploitation took the tape world by enough of a storm to thunder demand for more formats. "Bleaksploitation is earnest pop for the wonderfully doomed generation," says DIY Magazine; Stereogum calls the debut "stellar" and "invigoratingly terrifying"; 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 an anchor 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.
