Roadkill Ghost Choir - "Beggars Guild"

If You Like: Old Crow Medicine Show, Blitzen Trapper, Field Report

Roadkill Ghost Choir, an indie-folk group from Deland, Florida brings to mind a group of musicians playing their instruments on a porch down South. Their song “Beggars Guild” emulates the alt-country sound that is blowing up these days, while adding the band’s own unique spin to it. The song kicks off with a twangy, country-esque theme and then enters a lush psychedelic bridge, filled with cryptic Fleet Foxes-like vocals and a faint harp. The unique thing about this song is how it is able to seamlessly go back and forth between these two very different sounds. It is something that sounds similar while at the same time very different. Therefore, if there’s one song that you need to download this week, it’s this one.
