LA Times Premieres THE MILK CARTON KIDS Album

The Los Angeles Times is premiering the new record by acclaimed Los Angeles-based duo The Milk Carton Kids this week. To listen to the album go to http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/posts/la-et-ms-album-premiere-milk-carton-kids-the-ash-clay-20130315,0,6598355.story . The group's Anti- debut album entitled The Ash & Clay will arrive in stores on March 26th.

After several highly regarded showcases at SXSW, the duo will celebrate the release of the new album by hosting The Milk Carton Kids Revue on March 27th at Largo in Los Angeles. The evening will see the duo offer musical and vocal accompaniment to performances from Ed Helms, Tom Brosseau, Joe Henry, Over The Rhine, Joe Purdy, Jill Sobule, and special guests yet to be announced. To close the evening, The Milk Carton Kids will perform songs from The Ash & Clay.

In addition, The Milk Carton Kids will mark the record's March 26th release date with an in-store performance at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. They will then embark on a headlining tour of North America.

The Milk Carton Kids consists of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan. While the most obvious musical reference is the classic folk revival sound of twin acoustic guitars and matching harmonies, the band both expands and contradicts that rich legacy with highly inventive guitar lines and their intricately interwoven vocals. After forming in 2011, the duo quickly built a devoted following with the simple purity of their music and their celebrated deadpan stage humor.

Three songs from The Ash & Clay were recently featured in the acclaimed new Gus Van Sant/Matt Damon film Promised Land.
