Mister Lies @ Chicago's Lincoln Hall this past weekend (more by Zach Pollack)
Chicago producer Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca), who opened for Jessie Ware at Chicago's Lincoln Hall this past weekend, is gearing up for the release of his debut album, Mowgli, which is due to hit stores on February 26 via Lefse Records. You've already heard "Dionysian" and "Align" from the LP, and now Zanca has let a third track loose. It's an earworm-y number called "Hounded" and features vocals from Exitmusic's Aleksa Palladino. All three singles are available to stream at the bottom of this post.
Mister Lies has also revealed some live dates in support of Mowgli. He'll use SXSW as a launch pad for a brief North American tour in March. That tour includes a performance at Glasslands on March 30 with support from Rimar and Heathered Pearls. Advance tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now.
