Song of the Day: Beachwood Sparks - Old Manatee

In honor of my last full day at the beach, today's song is from one of my favorite underrated Sub Pop albums, Once We Were Trees by Beachwood Sparks.  I saw these guys open up for pre-Garden State Shins at the old Kings Barcade in Raleigh, when Beachwood was touring for this album and The Shins for their debut,  Oh, Inverted World (also one of my fav Sub Pop records).  Although this guy isn't the world's greatest singer, the laid-back atmosphere of the album, and in particular the banjo in this song, sound fantastic.  Just a great record to listen to while chilling at the beach.
