Shitty Hits’ is by turns self-deprecating and tender, with wonky piano riffs and static-riddled percussion twining around the lyrics. Katie Von Schleicher’s debut tackles feelings of mediocrity, and turns them into something grand instead. The second album from the Maryland singer-songwriter is sharp and beguiling, carried by Katie Von Schleicher’s innate and economic pop instincts.
It took me a while to come around on Katie Von Schleicher’s debut. It isn’t an album that jumps up and demands you take notice. It takes a few listens to notice some of the nuance of Von Schleicher’s writing and production. Like Stuart McLamb, Von Schleicher takes some good songs and makes them better. Whether it be distorted drums, squalls of feedback or a layer of fuzz, Von Schleicher transforms her pop into something special.

Katie Von Schleicher. Mostly, this debut tilts at Portishead covering the Beatles’ I Want You (She’s So Heavy), with some success. Compared with her 2015 demo collection, Bleaksploitation, the richer production allows Von Schleicher’s full-throated vocals to impress, swooping and keening above serpentine riffs and distorted drums. At first, the jauntier, slightly derivative rockers signal strongest, then the darker ballads and self-scouring lyrics lure you in.
Katie Von Schleicher’s indie-folk has a twisted take on domesticity and intimacyCHRIS BAKER. ★★☆☆ Firmly in the self-doubting indie folk camp is the debut album proper by this Maryland singer, who uses her vanities and insecurities as creative fuel. Every day I’m looking in the mirror, I know it’s wrong, but I can’t stop, she confesses on Midsummer, over the most basic backing on drum machine and keyboard, while Life’s A Lie finds her wondering if romance is worth the bother when we come in and out of this world alone.
