“The End of Time” by Hot Mustard (feat. Alanna Royale)

Carried by heavy organ chops and trashy rolling drums, the track cascades through several powerful passages before the brilliant Alanna Royale enters the scene with a short but stirring vocal performance. The track will finish out the forthcoming sophomore album, Seconds, in exceptional style, cementing another inspiring work of art into the Hot Mustard catalog.

Tara MacLean Shares Haunting Yet Soaring New Rendition of “Let Her Feel The Rain”
“I noticed that I felt numb, and I went and laid outside on the grass at night in the rain, and just let it fall on me. I just needed to feel it, to feel the pain, and then let the rain wash it away. And it did. I wrote this song when I came inside, still wet and muddy. This was the song that made me realize that music was going to save my life,” explains MacLean.
Decades later, MacLean has reimagined the song with layered background vocals and strings evocative of the lush environment which she calls home in the Pacific Northwest.
“In so many ways the song is about rebirth,” says MacLean. When it came time to shoot the video for “Let Her Feel The Rain,” MacLean returned to her ‘nest’ on Salt Spring Island to perform the song, complete with hair and makeup done by her children.
