OK, so I’m supposed to be posting more HBiaS right now… but this is BREAKING NEWS, and I’m sure Ethan won’t mind. for those of you who don’t know Everyone Asked About You, they were a freaking fantastic emo band from Arkansas. they put out a split with another quintessential emo band called The Shyness Clinic, and two 7″s of their own. they also wrote an LP that never released. well, now it’s on-line., and there’s *no* excuse to not get it. this is emo history.

more of the same, really. just more songs in the exact same style. you either like it or you don’t. it’s tragic and it’s captivating. this has less screaming than the previous posts. but it’s not really screamo anyway and screamo is a joke genre anyway. this music is not a joke though. but Ethan is a joker. all the sad boys are jokers. it hides their insecurities.
this is pretty old by now, but I’m pretty old and slow. some of you might remember that I posted Henry Bemis is a Superhero a long time ago. go download those albums if you haven’t already. HBiaS is Ethan, who’s also a bunch of other people. he’s a cool kid. this is some sort of country with some acoustic screamo. I know, I know… just listen already. it’s honest and simple. as the title gives away, this sounds a bit like Daniel Johnston; which is OK if you like Daniel Johnston and not OK if you dislike Daniel Johnston. I like Daniel Johnston, and I like HBiaS.
