The Milk Carton Kids

With two acoustic guitars and two just-as-acoustic voices, the Milk Carton Kids—the duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan—offer stripped-down strumming without much in the way of flourish, but there's plenty of comfort to spare. The LA duo veers more toward Welch-and-Rawlings type austerity than overly sincere, knit-cap coffeehouse folk (thank goodness), all while boasting ear-catching harmonies and Pattengale's nimble fingerwork. The Milk Carton Kids give away their albums for free on their website, but seeing this kind of intimate musicianship up close can't be replicated at home. NED LANNAMANN
