  • Todd Terje remixed Dolly Parton's "Jolene" (stream), playing NYC in January ++ other dates

    by Bill Pearis

    Norway's kitschy king of the dancefloor, Todd Terje, released one of 2014's best records, It's Album Time, which threw together a lot of different styles all under the special care of his particular aesthetic. Terje is also a master of the remix and edit, both of which come into play on his reworking of Dolly Parton's 1973 classic "Jolene." The song's signature elements -- the light fingerpicking, Dolly's voice -- remain intact as Terry lays down disco hi-hats, bongos and keyboards. It may be the best marriage of country and dance music since Tammy Wynette worked with The KLF. The remix was created especially for Chandelier Creative's 2014 holiday party and while the whole thing hasn't been released, you can stream a chunk of it below.

    Her golden motorbus, Dolly I, is almost too brilliant to look at under the direct slap of a Tennessee sun. It is parked in a Nashville carpark, blinds drawn, the on-board air conditioner grumbling. Dolly I isn’t as well travelled as its stablemate, Dolly II, which has ranged the motorways of Europe, and it doesn’t have the political consequence of Dolly III, once refused entry to Australia on grounds of its size, before senior ministers intervened. But like those other buses, Dolly I cost its owner more than a million dollars and you’d better believe she’s got it cool in there. When a security guard at the door shouts, “Dolly’s coming off hot!” he does not mean that Dolly Parton – country musician, cultural matriarch, about to alight – is feeling toasty.
