THE MILK CARTON KIDS
LA’s folk duo the Milk Carton Kids formed back in 2011, and have been earning praise for their modern indie take on traditional folk music. Members Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan’s flawless harmonies are easily comparable to 1970s era Simon & Garfunkel. Their retro vibe still feels connected to present-day thanks to their fearless songwriting, which appeals to fans from many genres, from Americana to pop.
Their latest album, Monterey, has been celebrated as the best release of their career, which has been full of solid and inspiring work. Monterey itself feels like a collection of poems that hit every possible emotion, from sheer joy to utter remorse. Although strong on its own, the Milk Carton Kids’ music shines it’s brightest when performed live on-stage.
