Simply stated, this is a phenomenal band and album.

John Roderick has already established himself in the minds of in-the-know listeners as one of the best young American songwriters around, based on the strength of The Long Winters' debut record and their handful of US tours last year, which elicited comparisons to such admirable peers as Spoon, Wilco, and Smog. On When I Pretend To Fall, the band ups the ante and delivers an astounding record, chilling in its unrelenting excellence.

Co-produced by Roderick, Ken Stringfellow (Posies, Big Star) and Chris Walla, (Death Cab For Cutie), When I Pretend To Fall features guest appearances by Peter Buck (REM), Scott McCaughey (Minus 5), Sean Ripple, (American Analog Set), and others.
