Classic EP Review: Forget About Tomorrow | … And Then There’s June

The Pennsylvania emo crew don't have any new tricks, but they know the old ones.

This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


The chiming, churning guitars. The driving beats and punky basslines. The hooky melodies and anthemic choruses. The angst-filled singer pouring out his heart about how Acquaintance turns to love — and love ends when Broken Hearts Are Blue.

Yep, Pennsylvania’s Forget About Tomorrow — who also go by the unfortunate acronym F.A.T. — are an emo band all right. But even if this foursome don’t show much innovation on their debut EP … And Then There’s June, at least their sound — sort of like Jimmy Eat World, but a little calmer and sadder — shows they’ve mastered all the old tricks quite well. They might want to look forward to tomorrow after all.
