In fact, Schickele can almost come off sounding a bit like fellow balladeer Shannon Wright on certain tunes, as her vocals are both elastic enough to accompany her through her various musical excursions and expressive enough to lend a certain weight to the songwriting.

Inhabiting the same wasteland of sparse sadcore as Low, Karla Schickele can make the plainest of melodies sob with poignancy. None Of My Business and the prickly Keep Your Eyes On The Road sound almost like practice exercises for the struggling pianist, but given the sincere delivery of her soul-baring laments they become truly mesmeric. The raw timbre of her voice on Complete is particularly chilling.
Karla Schickele was also active as . basically a solo project with help from other female musicians. New Problems (Tiger Style, 2001) is perhaps her most mature, sensitive and, last but not least, tuneful work. Goldfish (Tigar Style, 2002) is equally intelligent and charming. Heart Like A River (Polyvinyl, 2005) is an uneventful and sometimes dull tour of their emotional landscape. It mostly sounds like the album of songwriters who can't help feeling they have written great lyrics (they haven't) and need to set them to music (and they are no Beethoven)
