"With 'How Many Padmes Hum?,' Perry has produced an impressive set of songs, cohesive and creative. It’s refreshing when the content of a bedroom-produced LP can outshine commercial efforts..." -Under the Radar

"...a rather blissed out, dreamy and very beguiling sound which owes a little to shoegaze and drone as much as trippy and sometimes pastoral pop, with a psychedelic Syd Barrett edge. -ElsewhereNZ

"Very melodic and jangling pop which is also a bit sonically messed up… These songs are great – instantly memorable, well-crafted, noisy fun. Those with a love of classic psychedelic pop, shoegaze, or guitar-pop from any era should give it a listen." -PopLib

"...post-punk psych meets 90s alt on a beach kinda vibe. If you have the hots for bands like Tame Impala and Lotus Plaza doing Beach Boys covers, this 9-track cassette is right up your alley. Sam puts his own fresh spin on a familiar sound and I know I’m all about it." -C86'd

"Much like its name would lead you to believe, "La La La La La" will entrance you from the get-go, providing a melody that seems familiar and will cause increasingly enthusiastic hum-a-longs with each listen." -Earmilk

"Spawned in Christchurch, New Zealand, Zen Mantra channel trippy vibes with a smattering of young 'fuck the world' punkittude. Like a male-led Summer of Love girl group jamming surf rock in outer space, Zen Mantra will make you feel warm and fuzzy - much like a wake 'n' bake." -Christchurch CHART

"...hangs on catchy hooks and a beach pop disposition while retaining much of the fuzz-driven, grungy punk elements first heard in his previous releases." -Hearing Gold
