DOWNLOAD: Mister Lies - "Align" (MP3)
Mowgli's cover art
Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca) finally has some details to share regarding his debut full-length album. It's titled Mowgli, after his apparent obsession with The Jungle Book (who DOESN'T like The Jungle Book?), and is due out on February 26 via Lefse Records. He's just shared the album's lead single, "Align," which you can download at the top of this post and/or stream below. At its center, "Align" has this roving bass line and is far more agressive than anything we've heard from the beatmaker. In this case, change is quite nice, and we might expect more like it to appear on the album. Chicago seems to be rubbing off on him just fine, with the clearly-stated influence of house. Sample "Align" for yourself at the bottom of this post, and stay tuned for an LP preorder via Lefse. His "Dionysian" 7" is still available for purchase.
UPDATE: You can also scope Mowgli's tracklist below, which includes a song called "Hounded," that features vocals from Exitmusic's Aleksa Palladino.
Check out our recent interview with Nick, where he talks a bunch about the LP, and stream "Align" below...

Nick Zanca has been producing ambient electronic music under the moniker Mister Lies for roughly a year. With only a couple of EPs and a handful of shows under his belt, he's garnered much attention and critical acclaim. The positive buzz helped Zanca to secure a record deal with Lefse, who release his Dionysian 7" today (Tuesday, October 2). He'll also be welcoming his debut full-length album via the label in early 2013.
We recently sat down to talk about how he got his start, the music that makes him tick, and his creative process... among other things. Our chat begins below, and you'll also find a stream of his Dionysian 7" down there...
