Gravy Flavored Kisses
has announced November 3, 2012 as the official release date of The Mail EP
. The title track of the six-piece band's second EP features big horn lines, screeching guitar and a heavy blues riff. "When I Make it to Jackson
" listens in on a phone conversation of a couple planning their rendezvous in Mississippi and reassuring each other that the blame for her wealthy, elderly husband's death, which can be inferred was not from natural causes, will not fall on them.
A new take on the Stagolee and Billy Lyons folk classic, "Middle of the Night Blues," cleanses the palate before the raucous finish with "The Ballad of Edgar Valdez." The "ballad" is inspired by the true story of an American-born desperado who left a trail of corpses and bullet casings on his way to the top of a notorious Mexican drug cartel. The Mail follows their debut release In the Red.
