Name that Song, Acoustic Edition

Yesterday I heard this song in a Chipotle, but I regularly hear a snippet of it on some NPR (specifically WGBH, Boston) program. A link to my sluggish GarageBand interpretation is attached; the actual song is at a much, much faster tempo. I don't remember any vocals. What's it called?

I'm guessing you're hearing Everything Is Alright by Four Tet, and you're probably hearing it as the intro to On Point with Tom Ashbrook? (Fantastic album, by the way.)

My first thought was the Talk of the Nation theme song, although from this list it seems it was composed specifically for the show. Maybe it's something else on that list?

For some reason what you played reminded me of REM. Might be a stretch but here's a cover of Orange Crush I just found googling.

This is the theme song to the WBUR talk show On Point.

Came here to say what Rewind said, the couple times people have been around when that Four Tet track pops up in my iTunes they're like "Oh, the NPR song!"...

Yes, it's the Four Tet song! The radio station is indeed WBUR - d'oh!

Well, but I'm guessing it was the actual song playing at the Chipotle, as oppsed to NPR. Incidentally, I hadn't known it was a Four Tet song, so thanks!

BTW, he unexpectedly released a rarities album today.
