"‘INTRODUCING POSTMADONNA‘ by Postmadonna is a fantastic introduction that leaves a lasting impression of incredulous awesome. The real gem of this too-short EP is “Whose Absinthe Is This?”; it has easily become my favorite song to listen to after a beer or two. It’s a stellar example of music that is as catchy as it is complex. It’s dense enough to stand up to repeated listens, yet still offer some new sound or feel each time. You can also tune out the intricacies and just enjoy the groove and immediate melody. From the background vocals and well-placed harmonic here and there, this is a song that was not written but crafted, that must have been thought out and pieced together with the overall grand view in mind. Each instrument has its’ time to shine, much like jazz; there’s a time and a place for spastic drums, there’s a time and place for bass to pop up and dance around, and there’s a time for delicate guitar work. This tune has all of these and then some. INTRODUCING POSTMADONNA’ is well worth the price of admission. This is a solid outing of songs with catchy melodies that aren’t afraid of nerding out, technically challenging music that will get stuck in your head after only a few listens." (90%)
"There are bigger names in the “ADHD” cult genre, but none have made it so catchy, melodic or lyrical... Introducing is, in one word – rad. In two – “too short.” Start to finish, not a second’s wasted. Every subtle dropped or added beat fits perfectly and demands repeat listens. And, Lordy, the choruses, or rather the six-vocalist scream-along anthems, kill... you have no excuse: put these dudes on your iPod. Besides, Seattle listeners, it’s time for you to check out a local band that isn’t attempting to coattail-ride Fleet Foxes with MOR-folk and stereotypical gospel harmonies. Hell, you’ll even impress your biggest music-nerd friends."
"Postmadonna are maximalists in both group size and sound. Postmadonna encompass garish prog rock, quasi-hiphop bombast, organic/synthetic orchestral rock, and discombobulated psychedelia. On their Philip K. Dick–inspired album Valis, they make Flaming Lips at their most grandiose sound like Bill Callahan. You may not like every ludicrously extravagant gesture, but you have to respect Postmadonna's supersized ambitions and wizardly technical capabilities. They stand out in a morass of underachievers."
