Illinois...a state, an album, a band

The band Illinois is, ironically, from Pennsylvania. The band's new EP endears itself to me not only through the liberal use of banjo (which makes me giddy as a school girl), but through the band's great production and grasp of the tried-and-true indie bag of tricks. Think of it as Tapes N Tapes with more banjo. A little bit of songwriting growth and a better band name and these guys could go somewhere. There isn't a bad track on the EP, but the following is one of my favorites:
