  • Summary: You wouldn't know it from their album covers, or their music, but this indie-rock four-piece hails from Athens, Georgia, not Tokyo. 'Tomorrow' is their third full-length and first in five years (four, if you include their collaboration with Bedhead).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. The band's most eminently danceable record, featuring enough grooves to work your dance party while still retaining enough good ideas to deliver a challenging experimental record that fits well with the rest of the band's catalogue and points to exciting new directions the future could take.
  2. While they have incorporated new sounds into their palette, the sonic experiments don't quite work all the time and the album suffers a bit in places because of that.
  3. On some songs... the cutting-and-pasting fails to produce anything new, but a handful of others blend their textures beautifully. [Sep 2004, p.122]
  4. Wander[s] into engagingly curious sonic territory. [#13, p.125]
  5. Forget Tomorrow is a record of two exceptional ideas that would sound better as separate records.
  6. An uneven record that came out a few years too late.
  7. Despite its flaws, Forget Tomorrow has enough beauty and creativity to suggest that Macha's best music may still be ahead of the band.

    A nice mix of eastern noodlings and hypnotic groove-rock moments. Reminds me of Sonic Youth blended with 23 Skidoo. Hands down, 'Smash A nice mix of eastern noodlings and hypnotic groove-rock moments. Reminds me of Sonic Youth blended with 23 Skidoo. Hands down, 'Smash and Grab' is the winner in this collection. Why haven't I heard of these guys sooner? Expand
