Banjos. They're a tricky instrument to get right. Sufjan Stevens proved that they can work with triumphant effect yet they still remain fixed fairly heavily in the corner of Hillbilly shame.

Helped out by immaculate production, the track serves to perfectly showcase James' idiosyncratic songwriting and soft, soothing vocals; the world waits expectantly for more banjo and more James Canty.
