Instrumental duo Hot Mustard released a new track, “Butcher Block,” on Friday. The song is the latest single from their upcoming album, Seconds, which is set to drop on March 31st.
“Butcher Block” is both tender and bold, beginning with a gentle guitar riff, then slowly revealing vibrant percussion and buoyant brass. The soundscape builds into a dynamic tapestry of funk and jazz, with Ross Bogan on the organ, and frequent collaborators Jordan Mclean (Antiblas) and Dave “Smoota” Smith (TV on the Radio) on the trumpet and trombone, respectively.
The track is paired with a music video created by Jack Powell (under his artist monitor Opus Thimble) and, as described on Hot Mustard’s Instagram, “has the vibe of a good old fashioned psychedelic road trip through the desert.”
Watch the video for “Butcher Block” below, and keep your eyes peeled for Seconds to be released later this year.
