Harvey Milk: “A Small Turn of Human Kindness”: These Seans over at Crustcake called this “possibly the most miserable record ever recorded” and meant it as a compliment. The whole album plays out as a concept/story piece, with each song titled after a first-person line of dialogue (“I Just Want To Go Home”, “I Know This Is No Place For You”). After an instrumental intro track that features strange, nauseous dissonances between the guitar and bass, a brief, bleak story line plays out over the course of 6 dismally slow songs with a descending melodic motif recurring frequently throughout. Bonus track “In The Ground” makes a fitting coda. A gorgeously bleak album.
