HARVEY MILK HELPS NPR GET A WHOLE LOT HIPPER
I haven’t listened to NPR since I made the mistake of taking out Jonathan “I Am Boring as Fuck” Schwartz’s daughter once in college, because, well, Patton Oswalt pretty much nails in the above clip: it is true insomniac radio. But as Metal Insider points out, NPR just took an evolutionary leap in coolness by streaming Harvey Milk’s new album, A Small Turn of Human Kindness, in its entirety. Give it a listen here.
I know I seriously endanger my beardo cred (Do I even have any beardo cred? I haven’t had a beard since last September.) every time I admit that “I don’t get Harvey Milk,” but I don’t get Harvey Milk. Still, I’m sure that everyone cooler than me is jizzing all over themselves about this one. So after you’ve listened to the album, please explain to me what I’m not hearing. Or just stroke my ego by telling me I’m right. Y’know. Whatever.
A Small Turn of Human Kindness comes out May 18 on Hydra Head.
