Next Friday, PACKS will be releasing their third LP, Melt The Honey via Fire Talk and today they are sharing a final single from the LP, a track called ‘Missy.’
Much of PACKS new LP was recorded between Mexico City and Xalapa, where the band spent time last March working at a house known as Casa pulpo, an architectural feat removed from the bustle of city life, owned and operated by Wendy Moira, the visionary behind Teatro Lucido, a prominent theater and music venue in Mexico City. ‘Missy’ is told from the point-of-view of a cat who hung around the practice space in Xalapa, meowling at the neighborhood tomcat in desperation.
“She was trying not to look at us, but we could see right through her,” Link says. The yearning in Link’s voice (“Did I get those fleas to bite you?”) is later accompanied by Lupita Rico, who contributes a spoken word verse in Spanish.
