Praise for Poor Pretender

"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."

- 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
