After a five-year hiatus encompassing the birth of a son, a third coast to west coast and back to the third coast move, and an ongoing global pandemic - Chris Bathgate returns with 'The Significance of Peaches'.

On this, his 6th full-length album, the NPR & BBC-lauded artist is found ruminating on time spent living in the National Forests of Michigan while homeless, his emergence into fatherhood, and yes, the significance a certain stone fruit has played throughout his life.

Sonically, 'The Significance of Peaches' leans heavily on the structural support of parlor organ and Bathgate's signature multi-tracked percussion - surprisingly sparse use of guitar and strings sheathed in the middle - his haunted vocals and perching atop it all.

For Fans of Horse Feathers, Michael Nau, Damein Jurado.
