Harvey Milk - A Small Turn of Human Kindness
Reactivated US doom-merchants Harvey Milk return with A Small Turn of Human Kindness, a lumbering beast of a record which is as slow as it is rocking. Previous album Life...the Best Game in Town was a stunning comeback from the Athens, Georgia four-piece but this record cements them as one of the best sludgy doom acts around today. Screeching guitar drones and low-end bass punctuate tracks like 'I Just Want to Go Home', while the supremely evil roars of Creston Spiers make this at times quite terrifying. The juddery, out of place synths that start 'I Know This Is All My Fault' create a real sense of uneasiness, so much so that once the enormously heavy riffs return, they're almost a comfort. Not one for the faint of heart that's for sure.
