Aidin Vaziri | Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, the Los Angeles singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists who make up the Milk Carton Kids, are giving away digital copies of their bittersweet and beautiful album “Prologue.” We spoke to Ryan about the strategy of using the music as a calling card for the duo’s current 46-date headlining tour.

Q: You are giving your new album away. Don’t musicians need to eat, too?
A: Why, do we look thin? We give away our albums, but we also sell them, and people who want to support us have been buying them. But we also want to give those people a chance to share it widely and guilt-free, which they are doing with enthusiasm – something we obviously appreciate.
