The Milk Carton Kids

Milk Carton Kids Freebee Plan For Their Music Pays Off

April 23, 2013 - When Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan combined their solo careers to become Milk Carton Kids they discovered they had a lot to teach each other.

They also had a plan; to give away their music in order to find their audience. It worked remarkably well. Now their third album The Ash & Clay is out on Anti Records and they are playing to packed houses here and in Europe. What they have is some wonderful writing, performed immaculately, and that is what we’ll hear in their live set today. They tell us today how playing together has inspired writing for both of them. Listen for Joey’s song “Memphis,” a particularly telling song about America.
