The NY Times Reviews Harvey Milk Live at Le Poisson Rouge!

Back Together, and It Seems Like 1993

Sometimes the only way to take a measure of a band is hearing it play a gig. Most times, actually. But Harvey Milk, from Athens, Ga., seems a special case.

Harvey Milk Announces New Album, "A Small Turn of Human Kindness"

Among doom-metal bands, Harvey Milk is Squirrel Bait, the undersung journeymen revered by their peers and overlooked by the scene's Sunday drivers. They were the first and scruffiest in an indie-metal lane now densely populated with enlightened plodders like Isis, Pelican, Torche and Kylesa. - Paste Magazine

Once upon a time, I was a no-nothing mainstream metalhead who had grown tired of the crap I listened to. Then I discovered Harvey Milk and it was, more or less, a musical rebirth. - Stonerrock.com

Essential listening for fans of the band or anyone interested in the depth of sludge rock's brutality. - No Ripcord

One of the most formidable sludge bands to ever lumber across the earth. - PopMatters.com

A Small Turn of Human Kindness is as dense and as heavy temperamentally as it is musically. The seven songs so subtly bleed together that the listener has no choice but to view the entire album as a linear orchestration with a singular ebb and flow.... a rising and falling action, refined to hell and back. And so, all of these things lead me to believe that any and all true HARVEY MILK fans will eventually argue this record as the band's finest work. Or at least the vinyl version will become the quintessential mantle-piece for a generation of suburban children slumming it in the inner city... you know who you are!
