In the Press

"Long Mama has used their patience wisely, aspiring for gently crafted perfection. This is quite an introduction."

- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Equal parts theatrical, hook-laden, lyrical, and spacious."

- Milwaukee Record

"A debut unlike any other: a catalog of modern, oral tradition music."

- Hear Here Presents

"Where folk and indie-rock meet at a poetic intersection with some soulfulness and grit."

- Take Effect

"Wodtke’s storytelling is top-notch. If you need some moody folk songs in your life, this is the new album for you."

- Outsider

"Poor Pretender [...] invites listeners to be whisked away to a fictional but uncanny Western world that reflects Wodtke’s observations on humanity."

- Shepherd Express

"A hushed record rife with departures and narratives that beg remembrance of broken relationships before the memories slip away."

- Sound and Soul

New single "Corduroy Road" available now.

"It takes serious skill to make a song this warm."
- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Single Artwork and Design: Bryan Whitten and Jesse Bartlett
