      Bonus, their NPR Tiny Desk from a few years ago (which was amazing, IMO): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVDJ8O3lPBA

        That was delightful.

        I have a love/hate relationship with discovering new to me artists that have respectable levels of renown. On the one hand, why didn't I find them earlier? I could have been listening to them for ages! On the other, it shows that I still have so much incredible music to hear for the first time.

        Tash came across my spotify feed today with Jungle, and I knew I'd found someone special. I got my good headphones on, and listened to all of Flow State. I didn't love every track, but the ones I did I really love. They play with such emotion. I love their singing in overtones. It's great energy, and I love them, and I look forward to watching their work for years to come.

          Heh, I get that all the time too. I like to think I am pretty in-touch with the indie music scene, and the up-and-coming artists in it, but even I get surprised remarkably often by discovering an artist I really like well after they have already "made it".

          I didn't love every track, but the ones I did I really love.

          That's very much how I felt too. Some were meh, but the bangers really really banged.

          p.s. When I first saw the NPR video way back when, I initially misread the title as Tash Santana, and despite that not being the case, I still think it seems remarkably appropriate... cuz goddamn can they play that guitar!

          p.p.s. Also turns out I mis-gendered/pronouned before. That's what I get for making stupid assumptions. ;) Fixed.

    This has a different (flamenco-ish) vibe compared to a couple of other Tash Sultana songs that I like (Jungle, Notion). Thanks for sharing; Tash's a very interesting artist!
