The Milk Carton Kids

Their songs disguise the youth of the members of the band. So do the old guitars they play and old clothing they wear. But to be sure, the Milk Carton Kids present something new: harmonies and minimalist instrumentation with an eye intently on the future. 

Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan are the Milk Carton Kids and are distinct collaborators in song and story. They move to become a single, shadowy persona within the frame of Prologue—like young twins cast to tag-team one demanding role in a terse-but-tender film by Elia Kazan, haunted and hounded across a lonely landscape in search of the love that might provide their collective character a fleeting taste of both redemption and self-recognition.

Gaby Moreno's new album, Illustrated Songs, continues her love affair with the sounds of the blues, soul, and jazz that captivated her as a girl. Although she was born and raised in Guatemala, it was the sounds of the American South that inspired her to become a songwriter and recording artist. "I heard an African American woman singing on the street in New York City when I was younger. I just froze. When I asked her what she called that music, she looked at me and said, 'That's the blues, honey.'"
