15 August 2016, No. 175, The Turtles, ‘I’m Chief Kamanawanalea (We’re the Royal Macadamia Nuts) (Todd Terje Edit)’

Relocated! Appropriately the subject of my first report from hot and muggy Georgia evokes a tropical climate. It also features shakers, cowbell, and chants amidst a bunch of childish punning. Todd Terje has really dubbed out The Turtles’ “I’m Chief Kamanawanalea (We’re the Royal Macadamia Nuts)” in No. 175, stretching the original 1:30 out to a 5:00 jam. On wax this is “I’m Chief (Tangoterje Mix)” from Tangoterje, but on the web I found one called “Sjefen Sjefen (Todd Terje aka Wade Nichols Re-Edit).” Anyway, when it starts shaking and hollering, no matter what you call it, it definitely wants to lei ya.
