Thank You: Andy Chase, Phil Egenthal, Casey Fundaro, Michael McRaney, Gerard Mitchell, our families and friends and everyone who contributed to this recording.
"the group has gone all-out...the songs are tricked out in huge-sounding string sections, bombastic horns and atmospheric electronics...Yehezkely sounds great as the chanteuse standing in the middle of the swirling cinematic setting, alternately breaking hearts and charming the pants off you with ease. Most importantly, though, is the realization that the group still writes wonderfully melancholic and irresistibly catchy songs. The Postmarks are darn good at writing, playing, arranging, and producing... "
"... filled with smokey, blissful pop lullabyes perfect for a sunday morning."
"so sugary it's amazing it doesn't melt....fabulously fun to listen to.”
"Bacharach meets Brian Wilson!"
"swoons and rotates with the seasons... gorgeous... the postmarks self-titled debut may prove to be one of 2007's most sublime indie pop albums. Rating: 7.9"
"an amazing debut album filled with bittersweet separation, forlorn lovers, and rainy days that never seem to clear...a timely release as winter's frost gives way to spring's chilly breezes...one of the best new albums of the year."
"excellent debut record... every song wraps its tender arms around you... meticulously arranged and produced for full emotional impact ...you need records like The Postmarks in your collection."
"this cute, melancholic trio creates post-indie rock with intuitive ease. break up with your boyfriends just so you can listen to this record on full blast."
"...heartfelt sad poetic lyrics wrapped in curiously delightful pop melodies."
"perfectly crafted, lush indie-pop... The Postmarks fill a niche completely missing from the local scene and sorely lacking even on a national stage... this is a masterpiece."
"Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap ...I have never wanted to dive into an album like I do with 'Memoirs at the End of the World'. The Postmarks' have introduced me into a whole new way of feeling music."
"a suburban bedroom symphony suffused with post-teenage heartbreak and painstaking pointillism... some of the most complex and sophisticated pop music around, a self-contained, hermetically pure world of orchestrated, swooningly cinematic lusciousness."
"an unconventional trio with a flare for lucid ambience and smooth melodic tones...on their self-titled debut the nuevo-pop outfit craft enchanting multi-dimensional music."
"The Postmarks are like a really good glass of wine, rich and sweet..."
"On their second full-length, The Postmarks have ramped it up to the rafters…lavish and evocative, sumptuously arranged…'Memoirs at the End of the World' congeals into a thing of pristine orchestrated pop beauty...there isn't a misstep on here. Rating: 7.6"
"I could talk about the perfection of every song on this album, but for fear of sounding like a broken record, I'll refrain...don't laugh...this debut by Miami's Postmarks is a stunning achievement."
"...led by the fresh-faced chanteuse Tim Yehezkely...on this, their debut, the weather is always sunny and warm, even when she sings “Looks Like Rain” and “Summers Never Seem To Last.”
"catchy...sweet... this is good!"
"The Postmarks deliver smooth, sophisticated pop. their soft vocals linger with you the way good solid music should. check out tracks such as "Goodbye" and "Let Go" from their upcoming album."
"The Postmarks are a great new band. they make melodic, sophisticated pop with a subtle sense of mystery and darkness to it. And onstage, Tim is one of the most intriguing and charismatic singers I've seen in years."
