In the Press
"Long Mama has used their patience wisely, aspiring for gently crafted perfection. This is quite an introduction."
"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."
"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."
"A hushed record rife with departures and narratives that beg remembrance of broken relationships before the memories slip away."
