03 Equatorial Lies (Montebelluna Version) (2017) (4:14)

A version of the previously released song Equatorial Lies, but one that is closer to how it is performed on stage in power trio form. The song began its life as a solo guitar cumbia composition played over a loop, to fill a gap in the repertoire for Özüm's first ever solo performance in 2014. Hayvanlar Alemi arrangement of the song was released in 2016 on the Argentinian label Pakapi Records as a digital split single with the Peruvian band Shhjjjjjj, and later on Shalgam Records on the highlights compilation 15 Golden Adventures. A beer brand from Mexico created a remix of the song, when they were looking for a local-sounding tune to use in a beer advertisement that had a patriotic message in reaction to the anti-Mexican attitude of Donald Trump. This remix deal earned us some money which we spent for a five-day recording session in 2017 at Outside Inside Studio in Montebelluna, Italy, which provided material for the forthcoming album Psychedelia in Times of Turbulence (Subsound Records, 2020) and other future releases. This new version of Equatorial Lies was among the material recorded there and was initially planned for some other future release, but we decided that the current collection is a better fit. Recorded by Matt Bordin. Some overdubs made in 2019.

Işık Sarıhan: Drums and percussion / Özüm İtez: Guitar / Hazar Mutgan: Bass.

Composed by İtez.
