The Moonjock Songfacts says: Animal Collective open their ninth studio album, Centipede Hz, with this piece of bleary nostalgia, in which Dave 'Avey Tare' Portner recalls childhood summer road trips down the Atlantic Coast "in a blue Camino." He remembers not only the songs that soundtracked the journeys but also the radio, his cassettes and Walkman.
In our covered wagon times when Dad he had his captain eyes

And Mom she was our singer and we kept alive on greasy fries
I held onto my stash of jams that ran along in Michelin time
