The further pleasures of Illinois come from its refined, precise craftsmanship. While Stevens is widely cited as a banjo player, he's also handy with recorder, flute, oboe, glockenspiel, guitars, vibraphone, triangle, and church organ. His banjo playing is more Kermit on a log than Earl Scruggs; really his paramount gift is as a composer-arranger.

"I think that the OC, Six Feet Under, movie soundtracks and all that, have been great, but you still have a lot to worry about. I don’t think those shows have made the band a household name. Not much has changed. We have a lot of touring to do, and I don’t think that we ever thought it was ever going to be much. Modest Mouse, they seemed to have a good time, the Walkmen, they seemed to have a pretty good time, so we figured why not?"
