The Milk Carton Kids‘Two guys and two guitars playing Americana folk’ is an easy description of Californian duo The Milk Carton Kids. But what Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale do isn’t simple – it’s exceptional.

Magical harmonies and beautifully entwined acoustic guitar playing teamed with stunning songs sets them apart. Often compared to Simon & Garfunkel, they’ve a bit more of a Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings vibe. Stepping out of their comfort zone on their fourth album, they have for the first time added the accompaniment of some of the best session musicians around, and producer Joe Henry. Expanding and experimenting their sound has highlighted the uniqueness of just how special two guys and two guitars can be.

All The Things That I Did And All The Things That I Didn’t Do is out now via ANTI-/Cooking Vinyl.
