Beggars – “Beggars” – [Lotus House Records]

Beggars (album of the same name) is three guys from up and down California – Glenn Donaldson, Bruce McKenzie & Eric Nielsen – who play with numerous bands like Maquiladora and High Mountain Tempel. Beggars tend to tone down these connections.

Released from Lotus House Records, this is psych country/psych folk territory. Heavy on acoustic guitar with background mandolin, organ and lots of harmonies, these songs are about lost relationships, missed chances and old secrets. They sound like they should be sung around the fire pit outside an old shack in Topanga Canyon. Dusty, weedy, afternoon sunlight that blurs the vision. Turn it on, kick back and look directly into the sun.

Track 5 of CD B is a 22 minute deep listening style excursion.
