Sunday night at Lincoln Hall local producer Nick Zanca (aka Mister Lies) teased out some material from his forthcoming debut album, Mowgli. Fortunately you didn't have to be in attendance to hear some of Zanca's full-length before it comes out next month; a couple days ago the recent B Side feature subject dropped a song called "Hounded," and it's today's 12 O'Clock Track.

"Hounded" is the seventh song on Mowgli and it's one of my favorites from the album. Zanca does a great job of balancing harsh sounds with the hypnotic ambience that marks the earliest Mister Lies material; Exitmusic's Aleksa Palladino sings on the tune, and her echo-touched voice gives "Hounded" some moody atmosphere. Stream it below and be sure to read my B Side profile on Zanca.
