He borrowed it from Pavement for the Psychic Hearts material (Malkmus's tuning is actually CGDGBE, so Thurston added the unison Bs). All of Psychic Hearts is in that tuning. Most of A Thousand Leaves is, too. Then he used a modified version of that for the 2000s.

Anyway, the intro to Burroughs is the open B strings, so I think that settles that!
