Brooklyn avant-pop auteur Katie Von Schleicher released her stellar debut, Bleaksploitation, last year on cassette. Normally there’s a certain hipster pretentiousness that comes entwined in the tape reels, but with Von Schleicher it was means of recording in the perfect setting of a pitch black room on a simple 4-track mechanism. The result was her hazy, haunting, and at times invigoratingly terrifying debut. But most people don’t own tape decks, and since the album was excellent, there was a demand for other formats.

To introduce the reissue, she’s unleashed a clip for the opener and standout track “Baby Don’t Go.” The song is a slow-chugging, tender plea with jagged edges. Schleicher pleads with a partner not to leave and offers the most vulnerable begs delivered through cutting vocals clearing a path through slow, menacing guitar strokes for a wonderful darkness. The visual treatment from Matt Strickland is just as dark as Von Schleicher indulges in a vintage, vengeful fantasy with eerie ’80s camp vibes and wonderfully disturbing imagery.
