About The Milk Carton Kids
The Milk Carton Kids started their musical journey in Los Angeles. Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale formed the band with the intention of keeping it a folk duo in 2011. Both of the musicians had already started solo careers, but elected to put them on hold to collaborate with one another. The music is roots based in its songwriting and the twosome has created a level of complexity with their acoustic guitars, balanced with the harmonization of vocals. The Milk Carton Kids never skipped a beat, after forming a band. The folk outfit quickly released an album, Retrospect, in March 2011. Not long after in March 2011, the band released the full-length album, Prologue. Milk Carton Kids also toured extensively. Interestingly, they played as an opening act and supported Joe Purdy on stage during a tour prior to headlining their own.
The band has received comparisons to the work of Everly Brothers, and Simon & Garfunkel, but The Milk Carton Kids have definitely took on the Americana vibe and promoted it. The band had a stint on the Mountain Stage of NPR's roots rock show. Afterwards, the band toured with a number of other folk bands. Such acts included the Lumineers and Old Crow Medicine Show. Then, the Milk Carton Kids released its second album, The Ash & Clay, on ANTI-label in 2013.
The Milk Carton Kids Hits
The sophomore album was a huge hit and has brought the Milk Cartoon Kids an incredible amount of recognition. It remained on the Top Heatseekers chart in the number three spot for two years. It also made its way to the top of the charts for Hard Rock Albums and Top Independent Albums. It was clear that the Milk Carton Kids are onto something. The album contained relatively simple tracks that had Simon & Garfunkel vocals mixed in with east coast folk vibes. Accordingly, the twosome provides an amusing performance with amusing banter on stage. The songs cover politics, love, loss and even religion. Some notable songs include: "The Ash & the Clay," "Honey Honey," "Years Gone By," "On the Mend" and "Snake Eyes."
The Milk Carton Kids Trivia
It has been a growing trend among musicians to start releases albums for free. That is also that case for Milk Carton Kid's, as the band released Retrospect and Prologue without payment on its website. It has certainly helped to spread the Milk Carton Kid's music far and wide.
