On Repeat: “Michigan” by The Milk Carton Kids

How have I remained ignorant of The Milk Carton Kids until now?

Okay, so they’ve only been around since 2011, but this “vintage Greenwich village-inspired folk that blends the close harmony singing of Simon & Garfunkel with the technical acumen of the Punch Brothers”  is too good to ever miss.

Already, they’ve toured with the Lumineers and have received a Grammy nom for best folk album of 2013. I don’t necessarily put much stock in the Grammys, but still. This nomination is obviously well-deserved.

“Michigan” from the album Prologue is melancholy & rainy, but not depressing: a perfect blend. I would listen to this at sunrise on a road trip, preferably while leaving Michigan, of course.

Bonus: The Milk Carton Kids’ first two albums are available for free download on their website. Day made. http://www.themilkcartonkids.com
