Mister Lies set to make live debut next week

Mister Lies is the project of Chicago’s Nick Zanca.  Mister Lies will release its debut LP this Fall on Lefse Records — in the meantime Zanca has released a collaborative EP with Different Sleep for the Absent Fever label which is available today as a free download here.  Mister Lies is also set to make its live debut next month in LA.

 

From the Rising feature that ran on Pitchfork:

 

“The music is not the truth.” That’s the mantra you’re greeted with when heading to the Bandcamp page of Chicago-based producer Mister Lies, who makes the kind of warm, 4 a.m. downtempo electronic music that carries lineage in the work of Burial and Massive Attack. So what is the truth? Mister Lies is 19-year old student Nick Zanca, who’s currently studying philosophy and dramatic writing at Chicago’s Columbia College.

 

He originally hails from the suburbs of New Canaan, Conn., where he’ll be heading back this summer to work on his debut full-length, which follows up this year’s Hidden Neighbors EP and the new collaborative Mass EP with fellow Chicago producer Different Sleep. The Mister Lies LP should see release later this year via indie upstart Lefse (Neon Indian, Youth LagoonHow to Dress Well). Read on for our conversation with Zanca about how he got into music, his punk-pop past, why he chose to temporarily work anonymously, and where the name Mister Lies comes from.
