Giveaway Info

The Milk Carton Kids are a folk duo from Los Angeles, California made up of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan that formed in 2011. Despite being compared to other famous pairs such as Simon And Garfunkel and the Civil Wars, the Milk Carton Kids decided to steer themselves towards the Americana crowd. Touring extensively over the years, they eventually slowed down their schedule. Pattengale took on more work as a producer in Nashville and welcomed his second child and Ryan worked as a producer on Chris Thile's radio show. In 2018, the two returned with an album that had a backing band recording with them for the first time.

All the Things That I did and all the Things I Didn't Do reflects on how Pattengale and Ryan have got to where they are in life while introducing a new chapter for the future. The opening track is just pure and emotional American folk, which is what the duo is known for. "Nothing is Real" is a commentary on the digital age and disconnectedness of people in the world now. Produced by Joe Henry, the album is balanced by a wide range of musical textures that makes every song enjoyable. "Big Time" welcomes new sounds of the mandolin and country fiddle with the pair breaking out of their harmonies for solo verses. "You Break My Heart" sounds like it could have been created decades ago with heavy an ominous vocals. This album reaffirms The Milk Carton Kids' place in American Folk music.
