The Red Plastic Buddha / Press

““Chicago’s Red Plastic Buddha really nail their garage psych credentials, all of which bodes well for All Our Revolution, their follow up CD due out at the end of this year.””

Richard Deakin - Shindig! Magzine UK

““Sunflower Sessions is a fine calling card, signaling a promising band to watch.””

Charlie Sands - Pop Culture Press

"Like a Peter Max painting come to life, Red Plastic Buddha comes in colors. With semi-spastic guitar solos that bring to mind early Jefferson Airplane, keyboard parts that very vaguely suggest Ray Manzarek and the Doors, and vocals that range from an intense scream to a distant call, they've really got the flavors down. "

Jon Sobel - Indie Music Roundup

"I think bands like The Red Plastic Buddha will help launch psychedelic music's reemergence and you will see teenagers all over the world picking up guitars and putting together bands like they did when this music first became popular. "

Keith Hannaleck - Muzikman Reviews

"Sunflower Sessions, the debut from Red Plastic Buddha, is sure to spread far beyond the burgeoning psychedelic underground."

Trevor Dye - Defy Domestication

““Large, magnificent, powerful rock that defies pigeonholes””

Waymon Timbsdale - Roctober Magazine

““Great band name? Check. Songs that sound like they were written in the 1960s? Check. A big modern production that put the songs in a frame they deserve? Check. Psychedelic enough? Check. Rock & Roll enough? Most definitely check. Pop enough? Probably definitely checkmate. It almost seems too good to be really true.””

Steven Smalls - Daydream Generation

““Chicago’s Red Plastic Buddha has a big sound that just feels right. Their garage rock aesthetic, as evidenced on their debut “Sunflower Sessions” (Spade Kitty), pays homage to the past yet refuses to be tied to their heroes.””

Mike Wood - Foxy Digitalis

"Painted landscapes of layered sounds provided by the guitars, keyboards, and percussion parts all intertwined with vocal harmonies that take you back to the carefree spirit of an earlier time".

CW Ross - Indie Music Stop

"I'm really digging The Red Plastic Buddha."

Greg Kot - Chicago Tribune
