“These aren't coattail riders of The White Stripes or The Black Keys, this is a quartet with a sound all their own-- a refined, soulful swamp revival with hints of Americana, classic 60s songwriting, and whiskey washed grooves.”
"From head to toe the Muddy Reds embody the gritty fuzz of their riffs and vocals. They are an undiscovered gem in the City of Los Angeles. A town full of hopefuls and wannabe rockers, these guys don’t wanna be, they are..."
“This album is as much a classic as any major label release you’ll hear from a platinum artist this year.”
“If there were some little barbecue joint on a country backroad where part of the audience is dressed in mod clothes and the other part of the audience is in ragged concert t-shirts and jeans, The Muddy Reds would be the house band.”
“These guys are going to turn up in your near future. You might be surprised where and when.”
“A Los Angeles group whose swaggering rock and roll has continued to baffle crowds and "conjure images of dusty bones set against black sunrises, of sex and lost souls." Evoking our most primal urges to sweat and shake, booze and breathe, we must continue to ask ourselves why more groups like this aren't around.”
“It's been awhile since i've heard a good soulful rock'n'roll album I could honestly listen to from start to finish. That all ended when I found out about The Muddy Reds. Their latest release, Mannequin, is a nine track album that will have yourself asking why they're not signed-- at least that was my initial thought. This album has hints of Ryan Bingham's country style rock'n'roll peppered with a Kings Of Leon up-beat soulful feel. Give the album a good listen, because if the the swinging guitars and soulful vocals don't make your head nod you might want to check your pulse.”
“(From Pantin, France) Everything is there. Nothing is missing....Rock n 'roll that oozes from every pore...”
“This is a soulful album right from the get go...The balance between blues rock and classic rock is as about perfect as one can get...This is one gem that everyone needs to know about.”
"These guys definitely have their own sound going on – kind of garage punk crossed with hard-rockin’ blues. Distinct and promising. Look for them to be big soon on the festival scene. For now we get to keep them in L.A.!"
