Praise for Poor Pretender album
"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 prime synthesis of what happens when talented musicians coalesce around a common goal: playing the hell out of Kat Wodtke's songs."
- Hear Here Presents
"Wodtke’s storytelling is top-notch. If you need some moody folk songs in your life,
this is the new album for you."
"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
