Was out of town when this NPR premiere of ‘Chuckatuck’ from  beautiful new album by Nathan Bowles, entitled “Nansemond,” happened. 
I recently heard Nathan’s live set of this and needed immediately to be on a pontoon in a river, watching the trees go by. Happy to have provided, with help from my friend, (artist Anthony Campuzano designed the flag) a deeply weird portrait of Nathan to accompany his announcements.
