The Milk Carton Kids are a minimalist duo from California. Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale's blended voices and soothing acoustic guitar arrangements have earned them comparisons to The Jayhawks. The synergy is evident on Prologue, a shimmery, summery release full of travel-inspired folk.

As summer draws to a close, Ryan and Pattengale's songs encourage their listeners to escape the day's cares. Check out two tracks from Prologue on this edition of "World Cafe: Next."
