Chris Bathgate talks about his new record, The Significance of Peaches, which was released after living in a national forest in Michigan, farming in California, working at a tech startup in San Francisco, having a child and moving back home to Michigan. He talks about his journey and the album’s themes of nature, ‘baby fever,’ and the social inequities he saw in San Francisco between the working elite and the homeless.  

“I was shocked that a person could be in obvious need of immediate help and everyone can just walk past on their phone talking about where they are going to get oysters later [while] people [are] sleeping in the doorstep of Dolce & Gabbana,” Bathgate says.
