Aladdin Theater

[FLAT-PICKING FOLK] As anyone who has ever listened to the Milk Carton Kids can attest, simplicity often prevails. The dapper Los Angeles duo has issued three albums during the past three years—the latest being the fine The Ash & Clay—each of which is indebted to Joey Ryan’s sardonic humor and Kenneth Pattengale’s distinctive fretwork. The close-knit harmonies sweep like those on Simon and Garfunkel’s Parsley, with two acoustic guitars delicately setting scenes of prolonged heartbreak and new beginnings while leaving the revivalist wave of folky foot-stomping behind. Despite the lack of adornment, the songs showcase the innate beauty only two guitars and two voices can provide.
