At the beginning of the year, we wrote a love letter to The Milk Carton Kids and not-so-subtly urged you to pick up the album Prologue for free. (Yes, they are givin’ it away for free. Pure craziness.) Now, we’re following up that letter with a gigantic P.S. in the form of a “Keep Your Eyes + Ears On” feature devoted to the Los Angeles duo. It’s that necessary.
The buzzy folk twosome just recorded an interview and performance on NPR’s World Café, and The Milk Carton Kids were selected as one of the best acts of 2012’s SXSW by major critics like The New York Times, NPR, and Time Magazine. Even though the act is on the up and up, they remain committed to their original vision: two voices and two guitars.
