"…classic-rock guitar work melts into sunny vocal harmonies, creating songs that practically squirm with joy." - Magnet, Feb. 2003
2013 marks the tenth year since the release of When I Pretend To Fall, the indie-classic second album from Seattle indie rockers The Long Winters. Fronted by honorary Seattle cultural mayor John Roderick, and largely defined by his extraordinary songs that bring hooks and deft lyrical twists in equal measure, Roderick and his band have become an institution in the Pacific Northwest and around the world among fans of smart songwriting. (As Roderick says, "I like chairs that don't creak and songs that don't suck.")
