The Milk Carton Kids+Brendan Hines
California troubadour duo Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan bill themselves as the Milk Carton Kids, playing winding-vine folk-pop full of all briar-patch acoustic wizardry and wizened, knowing lyrics that sometimes converge affectingly. Celebrated unplugged icons of decades pastJames Taylor, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthriemay haunt these Kids' timbres, but there's no denying the virtuosity and forthrightness on offer here. Dad-rock connoisseurs could do much, much worse.
