"Kick" by Dave Hause
“Kick” is a protest album, like so many coming out, but its style and Hause’s lyrics separate it from the pack. It’s fueled by anger, resentment, disappointment, but it’s not defeatist. It’s not the only album offering hope in the darkness, but it is the only one to hit me so emotionally. I equate this to the songs being more than anthems or fight songs. Ultimately, at their core, these are love songs, and as long as love exists, hope does too.
