5.0 out of 5 stars avoid either band alone; get this instead... Feb. 13 2001
Format:Audio CD
this EP is worthwhile solely for tracks 2 through 4, which are some of the best pieces of songwriting i heard all of last year...the patient guitar squall intro to "never underdose" unfolds into a haze of feedback, oddball noises, and smeared, spiritualized-esque vox that gallops along for several minutes, displaying a clear-headed confidence and power that neither band has been able to attain on their own...
macha's clamorous experimentation is more grating than anything else, and the late bedhead failed to transcend their own slo-core sadsack rulebook, which hampered the occasional bursts of beauty on their albums and rendered the rest of their songs mumbly bummers (see arab strap for endless creativity within a distinctive, slow and "mumbly" style)
but somehow, with the mix of macha's eccentric instrumentation and bedhead's languid arrangements, the resulting sound rings very fresh, easily qualifying as more than just a curio...it was one of the finest rock releases of 2000...
after the dark, yet soaring and wonderful "hey goodbye", we hear the star of this EP, "only the bodies survive"...with it's lovely ringing xylophone, humming bass rhythm, and tender lyrics, sung in a perfectly restrained murmur (bedhead's murmurs were self-conscious and unaffecting), and lengthy droning coda, the song is what a song should be in these pomo days of blippy posturing and backward-looking blandness: fresh, affecting (with more than one emotion), melodious, etc...and it happens to be downright pretty as well...
you could much worse than to buy this, off the almost always reliable (aside from macha!) jetset label...the umpteen filler tracks separating the "real" songs from the cover of cher's "believe" are forgettable (meant to be?

5.0 out of 5 stars 86 abstract scars-turned-beauty-marks June 14 2000
Format:Audio CD
Extraordinary textures ("Never Underdose") and subtle humor ("Believe") further convince me that Macha is the most innovative band writing and playing songs today, and that Bedhead, who (as Salon put it) "succumbed to day jobs," were absolutely amazing as well.
Macha Loved Bedhead, Bedhead Loved Macha is a correspondence in the vapors . . . 86 abstract scars, er, songs, built into beauty marks. Bedhead and Macha have always respected each other, so when Bedhead sent songs to Macha, Macha lovingly completed them. The result is an art installation of the alien fragments among us: transient relationships seen from afar, devastating loss, and a scathingly hilarious remake of Cher's "Believe" whipped into a truly mesmerizing concoction . . . a truly rich and beautiful release.
