Last year I fell in love with Chris Bathgate’s latest album Salt Year and during the recent months I’ve been working my way through his back catalogue. First A Cork Tale Wake took my breath away and now I’m forming a lifelong beautiful relationship with Throatsleep. Chris Bathgate has been the artist I’ve listened to the most during these early parts of 2012 and very often I start my work day by selecting artist Chris Bathgate from the iPod menu and hitting play all. Chris Bathgate is one amazing folk musician, brilliant songwriter and a true genius. If you don’t take my word for it, listen to these magnificent songs from A Cork Tale Wake and Throatsleep (Salt Year is equally wonderful, but I’ve posted songs from that one before).
