The Milk Carton Kids

We rented a film at the weekend and towards the end, I heard the song 'The Ash and Clay.'  Who was making these beautiful harmonies?  There was something reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel about this song.  I rolled through the credits until I found the music and discovered The Milk Carton Kids.

This Indie folk duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan are from Eagle Rock, California.  They have recorded three albums in the last two years and their first two albums Prologue and Retrospect are available as free mp3 downloads from their website.  How many groups release their albums for free?  Look out for their 2014 tour, which includes stops in Canada, the US and the UK.....I wonder if I can get to Toronto next spring to see them....or Glasgow?


  1. Hi Marie!

    Thanks for the heads-up on these guys, their music is fab - I particularly like The Ash and Clay. I have a look at their website for a bit more! :)

    Best wishes,

  2. We like the Milk Carton kids! They were recently on the US radio program A Prairie Home Companion and did some great sets... we love Indie/folk! :o) Happy Days, Marie ((HUGS))

  3. Tash ~ I love The Ash and Clay too! It is a tune that I've been listening to a lot this week.

    Tracy ~ glad that you are also a fan. I saw on their website that they had been on National Public Radio.
