Hot Mustard - "Mustard Green"

The latest from Hot Mustard features Jordan McLean from Antibalas on trumpet and TV on the Radio's Dave "Smoota" Smith on trombone. "Mustard Green" is this impossibly funky blend of 70's soul, jazz, and hip hop. It's an instrumental track that slowly wanders its way through all of those genres, and just kind of meanders around different tempos as well. It's one of those impossibly cool songs that truly dares you to define it. This is the perfect song if you like The Roots, Guru, The Soul Rebels, or other genre blurring artists. Even if you aren't a fan of any of those, you should truly check out "Mustard Green." This is the kind of song that will reward you for stepping outside of your usual comfort zone.

Jack Powell says of his band's new song:

"There is some heavy contrast in this one, part of it is light and easy and part of it is ominous and foreboding. An interpretation that I like is the need to overcome discomfort to reach a higher plateau."

You can watch the video for "Mustard Green" below. Seconds is due out March 31 on Color Red Music. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on Hot Mustard, check out the band's website.
