ALL THE THINGS THAT I DID AND ALL THE THINGS THAT I DIDN’T DO has already been previewed by such extraordinary songs as “Younger Years” and “Big Time,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. The latter track arrived last month via an exclusive premiere in Rolling Stone, which wrote, “Kicking off with a lively fiddle vamp, ‘Big Time’ features light percussion and buoyant acoustic thrums under Pattengale's tremulous voice. He takes the first verse and chorus and then supplies harmonies to Ryan, who handles the lead throughout the rest of the high-spirited song, sung from the point of view of someone finally taking control of his or her life.”

“Big Time” followed the release of the project’s unprecedented opus, “One More For The Road.” An epic 10 minute-plus musical excursion through folk, jazz, psychedelia, and back again, the landmark track earned immediate attention from NPR’s Bob Boilen, who wrote, “If this 10-minute-plus song is any indication, The Milk Carton Kids are about to release a truly epic album.” “One More For The Road” is available now for individual purchase and on all streaming services.
