I listened to So Much Light, you could tell this guy loves Owen, almost the exact same type of music. It's like a really poor imitation. But the voice is just bad. Don't know how anyone could get into it.

Looksy is great though.

Hey everybody, I'm the guitarist of Give Us Your Bones, I just wanted to really thank Andy and absolutepunk for putting us up here and thank anybody who downloads our EP! If you love it, like us on facebook :)

Also, that Sic Vita song is so sick, I can't wait to listen to all the other ones.

Everything sounds good for the quality it is! Good work. If I had a facebook, I'd 'like' the page.

I don't like that your bandcamp looks like a geocities conspiracy theory page, haha.

Thanks so much! Yeah, it was the best we could do with the software and crappy mics that we had. But I really appreciate that, the geocities comment made me legitimately laugh out loud, so I'm going to be sure to fix that. I haven't heard of geocities in forever.

Never thought I'd see Gasoline Heart or Squad Five-O in a RIYL.

Our Sunday Affairs is so good. Vocals remind me of a combination of AGBPOL and The Front Bottoms.

I recommend giving it another try. I thought the same thing the first time I heard it but I'm digging it lately. Maybe listen to his other project Mansion Closet.

Thanks for the link ups of some of the downloads on our site. If anyone is into free music, you're going to love "Passionate Hope Vol. 2" and "Passionate Hope Vol. 3". 40 songs on each compilation. Passionate Hope Vol. 2 was released on July 1st and Vol. 3 on August 1st. Indie worship with heart.

I agree. I will be catching a few shows in the Dallas area. I'm surprised Ive never heard of them before this.

We didn't promote anything about the band until we finished recording the EP at the end of June. Glad you like it dude
