"So Close finds LC still offering endearing melodies but shading its well-crafted brand of’90s/’00s Indie Guitar Rock (tighter than ever here) with darker tones, sounding like a natural extension of the soulful, no-BS Rock & Roll of The Gits and Sleater-Kinney.
Beth Cheek turns in one of the more remarkable vocal performances you’ll ever hear on a local Rock album" - CityBeat
"Buddha Car has the rag-tag energy of Garage Rock, with the spike-and-sass kick of old-school Punk/New Wave and more than a little taste of pure Pop sophistication..." - CityBeat
The Cincinnati Enquirer said "They're funny, vulgar,
honest...A blend of rock and punk, edgy and sugary-sweet"
CinWeekly declares Buddha Car "A mixture of lo-fi punk energy and perfectly blended harmonies, the album is an instantly likable listening experience - all edge and melody"
Lovely Crash has showcased their music at
