mck3      The Milk Carton Kids are a duo that started in Eagle Rock, California in 2011. Their work took me by surprise and has opened doors to other folk groups as well. Out of their three albums albums Prologue, The Ash & Clay, and Montery, The Ash & Clay is by far my favorite, The Hope of a Lifetime being my favorite song off the album. Although the gig’s they’re playing at may not be the biggest, the shows that they put on are ones you’ll be sure not to forget, specifically at the Lincoln Hall in Ohio. When watching the performance, the song that blew me away was Girls Gather Around at 30:00. The Milk Carton Kids have proven their ability to write folk/americana songs is incredible. The combination of Joey’s travis picking on his old Gibson j-45 brings an amazing warmth to the albums as well as Kenneth creating harmony at the same time while his fingers are flying across the fretboard on his little Martin. Later on, their work will be considered Americana classics.
