Chris Bathgate

A Cork Tale Wake

Singer-songwriters concentrate more on the songs than the production, right? Well, we can only wish that Michigan folkie Chris Bathgate had been more attentive to this stereotype. His third album offers impressive arrangements, as on the Velvets’ drone of ‘Every Wall You Own’ or the sprightly pop of ‘Restless’, but little in the way of memorable tunes or lyrics.
