Probably around 2009, Nadine met Shawn, label manager over at Anticon, and artist, Will Wiesenfeld of Baths, at our Flatstock booth at Pitchfork Festival, here in Chicago. They were so kind to stop by and look at our poster work in the midst of the festival mayhem. Nadine was quite embarrassed that she wasn't familiar with Baths' music, as he was one of the headliners that summer; not to mention the label, Anticon, as they are the home to many musicians we love. They were super generous to turn a blind eye, yet Shawn left the booth, just asking for us to look them up. He was right. Over the years, we've been following the labels' support for artistic voices more closely. Baths' music resonates with how we work, and what we believe in. He is a great performer, with all the presence without the BS.
