Joey Ryan & Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids are the definition of deadpan shenanigans - this is what it looks like 👆🏼.
Oh man, I think The Milk Carton Kids have broken me, and it hurts so good and feels just right. A #Repeater has been uncovered in their song Michigan (Prologue, 2011). And despite the inherent pain involved in the process of listening to a song that stirs your soul, I just keep going back for more, like an addict, until I'm sure that it's become a part of me. Until its been properly steeped into my mind and heart.... listening until I wake up in the thin, blue, quiet light of the morning and realize I've been singing it in my sleep... as I sing it while I wake.
I want you to listen to Michigan with me, please. Inevitably, whenever you listen, no matter what time zone, location or circumstance you can be quite sure I'm listening too.
