Editors’ Notes Melbourne multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana says a "flow state" is what happens when you’re so connected with what you’re doing that you actually become your art. Sultana's debut album—which the artist wrote, produced, arranged, and played all 15 instruments on—is a lavish, organic mélange of soul (“Cigarettes”), R&B (“Murder to the Mind”), reggae (“Mellow Marmalade”), folk (“Pink Moon”,) and hip-hop, a sound recreated live using loop pedals. For years, Sultana's skills were honed busking on the streets of Melbourne, building a career with the determination heard in the lyrics of “Salvation,” a song about creating your own narrative: “I don’t need you for my own validation.”
