the clientele: 'reflections after jane'

This song comes at you through water. The sound waves slowed and liquefied as you float down through a pools sparkling chlorine. As the donut shop napkins in your cargo pants pockets become bloated and heavy you find your back on pool's bottom--flickering sunshine fading into the grey of English summer skies. You slipped into the water a smiling beach boy and hit bottom an innocence-lost adult; wrestling free of your clothes and worries, you climb from the pool a little of both. You are now a mix of sun and cloud... and so is The Clientele's "Reflections After Jane".

A lovely song.

Thanks to salon.com's audiofile for exposing me to it.
