The Milk Carton Kids (Vera Sola supports)

Usually seen dressed in suits and outfitted with guitars and a single shared mic between, the Milk Carton Kids Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale are well known for their dry humor and singular harmonies. With their new ANTI-Records’ release All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn't Do, the Kids delve into a new sound that involves a sizable band and backing vocals.

“There are only so many things you can do alone in life that allow you to transcend your sense of self for even a short period," Pattengale says. "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.

By extending that language to a band and reimagining the boundaries around what acoustic-centered two-part harmony can sound like, All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do carries listeners down a river and out into the open sea.

Vera Sola is a poet, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist.

A drifter performing her own songs alone in and out of dark bars under various pseudonyms, Vera Sola toured and recorded with a variety of artists, for a long while accompanying singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins on the road. She has in turn collaborated on film scores and provided original music for theater and performance art.
