There are only so many things you can do alone that al- low you to transcend your sense of self for even a short period, ” Pattengale says.
We had been going around the country yet another time to do the duo show, going to the places we’d been before. And things start to obscure what is the melody and what is the supporting part. A third presence rises out of their combined voices. I’m the lucky recipient of a life in which for hundreds of times, day after day, I get to spend an hour that is like speaking a language only two people know and doing it in a space with others who want to hear it.

Sometimes in singing, we’ll switch parts for a beat or a bar or a note, ” Ryan says. We wanted to do something new, ” Pattengale says.
While many of their laurels reference specific genres, the duo quickly transcend those tags, even the dark lyricism of modern “alternative, ” all broadening their appeal, with inflections of jazz, classical, so that the audience at a typical Milk Carton Kids concert can range from 18 to 80. Monterey poses this question with grace, beauty and a sly humor.
Monterey is an album forged literally and metaphorically “on the road”, an album that seems to ask how we can resolve the contradiction between the lightness of our footprint as we pass through, and the weight of those memories gathering behind us in the rearview mirror. And for all the attention the duo receives for combining into one voice, on Monterey we finally hear the singers as distinct; the acclaimed harmonies move farther apart so that the quirks and kinks of two individual identities emerge, the harmonies all the while remaining lush and soaring, their beauty all the more apparent for the showing of their scars.
Like the pioneers johnny cash and emmylou harris – both of whom the band paid tribute to this last year – the Milk Carton Kids take American music at its word, without confines or borders. Milk carton kids- all the things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn't Do. Now with their third album Monterey, The Milk Carton Kids have evolved their signature sound into its purest essence.
