- A Small Turn Of Human Kindness by Harvey Milk
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 04 June 2010
Harvey Milk are the only band i can think of that actively rip the piss out their own fans for enjoying their self-depreciating slabs of booze induced sludge rock whilst simultaneously pandering to said audience by reforming and making awesome records that everyone who likes them would want to hear. It's cynicism working on new and ever powerful levels. But fuck what Harvey Milk think of themselves (and us), i still reckon they are up there with the best rock bands the modern world has to offer, so they'll just have to learn to live with it. I don't think Joe Preston is playing on this record but it doesn't make a huge amount of difference as 'A Small Turn of Human Kindness' is a masterpiece by comparison to the now tame sounding party rock (i use that term loosely in reference to these guys) LP "Life the Best Game in Town....". Though the album is made up of seven tracks it all seems to bleed into one almighty doom power sauce that must be consumed in one gulp to fully enjoy. It's consistently slow. It's consistently heavy whilst possessing many a beautiful melodic passage and counter guitar harmony. It's the fucking tits basically. It's even got a tune with Mellotron on it! YES! It's probably the best record they've ever made. It's certainly up there with 'My Love is Higher than your assessment of What My Love could be' and 'Courtesy and Good Will to all Men'. I'm totally exceeding the word count here but you get the idea. Fuck Harvey Milk and buy this album today. PEACE OUT!
