Tom Gabel, Heart Burns

29 10 2008

 

Against Me! founder, front man, and songwriter Tom Gabel released his first solo album, Heart Burns, yesterday on Sire Records.  This seven song EP is a return to the folk-punk early days of Gabel and Against Me!, and the open honesty and passion in Gabel’s lyrics make this album one of my favorites of the year.  The glaringly overriding theme of the music is our current political and cultural climate and he writes with a combination of hope and frustration that actually moved me when listening.  One day into obsessively listening to this EP, my favorite tracks are Random Hearts, Cowards Sing At Night, Amputations, and 100 Years Of War.  Check it out, you will not be disappointed.
