My interpretation: My interpretation of this song is that Jenny is a young girl who goes to see a local likely Grateful Dead cover band. Like the hippies of the 60's whom they imitate with their lifestyles, they feel like they are apart of something. Stephen Malkmus born May 30th, 1966, Santa Monica, California is an indie-rock musician, a former member of the bands Pavement, Silver Jews, and the The Crust Brothers. I m also guessing the Golden is named after the lead singer of Phish. Not sure about your question.
Malkmus knew fellow Pavement songwriter Scott Kannberg aka Spiral Stairs , of the Preston School of Industry, since childhood in Stockton, California. Jennifer dates a man in a 60s cover band He's the ess-dog, or sean if you wish She's 18, he's 31 She's a rich girl, he's the son Of a coca-cola middle man Kiss when they listen To brothers in arms And if there's something wrong with this They don't see the harm In joining their forces and singing along See those rings on her toes check that frisbee in his volvo It's a volvo with ancient plates They've got a dog she named trey A retriever with a frayed bandana around his neck Trey has a window into their relationship The baby talk voices And the post class-a nasal drip But it all seems to function At least in her dog's mind Let me out of here Let me out of here You got to let me out of here You got to let me out of here Let me out of here Out of here Out of here, out of here Let me out of here ill hit the ground running Jennifer left for school up in boulder And the ess-dog came to visit when he could But the strain was too much They could not make up for distance And the distance between their years. Question: Did Jenny make up Seans nickname ess-dog?. Malkmus knew fellow Pavement songwriter Scott Kannberg aka Spiral Stairs , of the Preston School of Industry, since childhood in Stockton, California. It sounds like summer, like falling in love. Malkmus attended the University of Virginia, where his father is also an alumnus. Their relationship revolves around the music that they listen to and it is an important element of their relationship.
General CommentGreat tune -- pretty straight forward, obviously. They aren't quite sure what to make of their lives. And if you want to know why he broke up the band, check out the three B-sides, all covers, all recorded live in Germany in February of 2001. If you want to know how good Stephen Malkmus is, listen to the A-side, an affectingly ironic portrait of a May-December romance between a burnt-out guitarist and a starry-eyed coed that sounds deeper because of his off-hand, tossed-off delivery. Yeah, it's still pretty loose, but it's harder, fiercer, and tighter than anything Pavement could have done, and when you hear the joy he has in sheer rocking, you realize that Pavement couldn't have done it like that and, yeah, it's worth it to hear him cut loose and just rock.
He says he never writes anything literal, but that's not far off. His solo works include Stephen Malkmus 2001. He could be talking about Jenny's dog Trey, but I think it's more likely that he's actually referencing Trey Anastasio himself. Sean has given up on his dreams of playing music, and has faced his reality: waiting tables. Anyone familiar with the audience Malkmus is alluding to in the song knows that they enjoy illicit substances.
Knowing Malkmus, this lyric is likely ironic, but it could very well be sincere. Malkmus currently resides in Portland, Oregon with his partner, artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins. Jenny feels like she is being suffocated, so to speak, and this is her way of telling Sean she needs space. Didn't see this when I before I decided to do my interpretation. In 2005, Hutchins gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter named Lottie. I love the part about Brothers in Arms, which is a Dire Straits album.
These are two people, who despite their age, have a similar mindset and worldview. Sean is in the band, and young Jenny is impressionable at the age of eighteen and believes that he has the answers to what she needs in her life. Sean reminds me of a friend of mine from high school, who at age 27, started dating an 18 year old -- they ended up parting ways because she went to school, much like Jenny. About two people in a relationship that's going nowhere because of the age gap. If you've ever been to a Phish show, you know it's not uncommon to see the lot kids bring their dogs. Stephen Malkmus born May 30th, 1966, Santa Monica, California is an indie-rock musician, a former member of the bands Pavement, Silver Jews, and the The Crust Brothers.
Jenny has decided to become a sorority girl in college, and she has stripped herself of her toe rings, both physically and metaphorically. General CommentThis song reminds me of a ton of people I know. His solo works include Stephen Malkmus 2001. . .
