The Milk Carton Kids – Hope of a Lifetime

May 1, 2013

Consisting of two multi-talented guitarists and singers, The Milk Carton Kids are a quickly rising folk duo out of Los Angeles, California. This track is off of their new album The Ash & Clay, and seems to represent the most cohesive style of the two as they work to find their voices. “Hope of a Lifetime” begins with a complex array of acoustic guitars that intersects with the calming union of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan’s two quiet voices. The song is whimsical and sentimental all at the same time, but is a bit sadder if you focus on their introspective lyrics. The group has brought a

level of complexity into folk music, but has still created three fantastically dreamy and completely accessible albums that you can check out at the link below.
