South Florida artists -- with the exception of Rick Ross -- continue to get high marks on the notoriously difficult-to-please music site Pitchfork. This time it is The Postmarks who manage to snag a 7.6 rating from reviewer Matthew Solarski. In the review for their latest album, Memoirs at the End of the World, Solarski theorizes, "If the Postmarks' delightful, weather-obsessed, self-titled 2007 debut didn't quite catch fire, blame the times."
This is what he had to say about the album itself:
Yehezkely, with her limited range and slightly detached delivery, effectively bridges that gap between the music's indulgent/escapist tendencies and our desire to connect with it despite that distance. With her the Postmarks very well may have found a way to speak to both of the indie pop worlds they once seemed so precariously caught between: an unlikely marriage of craft and unpracticed charm, and a music made for dreamers and by dreamers. Can't wait for the sequel.
