All you dedicated listeners Album) have wholly adopted vinyl as your format of choice are going to have to hold your horses for a short while, though I assure you the ball is in motion! Small Turn airs its grievances to the tune of near-funereal doom metal; tempos crawl, chords hang in the air like stink, riffs unfurl over many minutes, and frontman Creston Spiers' yowl reaches untold heights of lowness.
The band's seventh album, A Small Turn of Human Kindness, plays like one long metallic dirge, which chronicles a broken man, his broken relationship and the doubt of grace A Small Turn of Human Kindness marks somewhat of a return to Harvey Milk's weirdest and challenging music, but with every release, Harvey Milk has brought its disparate sonic worlds closer together.
Singular and Absorbing - Dusted Magazine. I Alone Got Up and Left. A different structure altogether. Slow and sad in the beginning, and building up towards a nice climax in the end.

Very strange sounding, and grimly Album). The finale, "All the Live Long Day", is possibly the most primal thing here, with a sledgehammer striking an anvil repeatedly, forming part of the rhythm track, in between tortured howls. Overall, I have to applaud this sort of album.
Any album that keeps me guessing not just what will come next, but what the band's overall strategy is, certainly has my interest and attention.
And knowing what I now know about the band and their catalog as a whole, it's all coming together and making sense, kind of.
