  2. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Often, she comes across as heir to songwriters such as Todd Rundgren and Randy Newman - raising a jaded, critical eye to the world. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Katie Von Schleicher’s debut tackles feelings of mediocrity, and turns them into something grand instead

  5. 8.0 |   Q

    High-end songwriting with a coat of lead paint. Print edition only

  6. 7.1 |   Pitchfork

  9. 6.0 |   Mojo

    At times things get wincingly experimental; but mostly, it's claustrophobic and deeply magnetic. Print edition only
